Where have I been?

Hello Blog-world!
Well, since Matt and I have been on the adoption journey and now that I am on Facebook, my poor little blog has been neglected!
So here I am playing catch-up again!
Ok, Matt and I are now certified to be foster, foster to adopt, or adopt parents! We are excited and we are just waiting for God to bring the right kids into our lives! Preparation has been fun! Thanks to my friend Becky, we have furniture waiting in the last bedroom! She gave us a matching twin bed and dresser that are white and natural wood- I love it! So now both kiddo rooms are furnished! YAY!
The week before last we enjoyed vacation in Williamsburg with Lewis and Lindsey- fun time!
Other than becoming certified, I can't think of any other life-changing events that have happened! I have thought of a couple stories to write about on here over the past few weeks but now that I am on here, they escape me!
Matt and I baked our first pie yesterday, perhaps, I should write about that!

Sweet Little Angel

Here is a poem that I wrote for a friend who had a miscarraige:

Sweet Little Angel

There’s a sweet little angel in heaven above
That knows your name and knows your love
With a big sunny smile and locks of gold
A happy heart and a laugh that’s bold

Joyfulness is the dance, yes, it must be
Of one who runs and plays so happily
So do not be sad for the wait that’s long
Your angel is watching you be so strong

You will share strength with others some day
Who have lost all hope and have gone astray
You may be the one to let others know
That God loves them so don’t let go

His love is holding you and an angel in his hand
His strength is secure when you cannot stand
When you are weary and need to rest
Cling to the Father who loves you the best

Keep your faith close and hold it tight
So that your yoke is easy and your burden light
Believe that God in His power has spoken your love
To a child that is waiting for you in heaven above

Long Time- No Write

Well, It's been a while since I've written on here...

I'll play a little catch-up, Matt and I are underway with our training for adoption! We should be certified by the end of May! -We are very excited!

We renovated our den- that was fun! I'll have to post some pics of that later on!

Today, I had the carpet buy come patch a place that Petra had dug up way back when. She taught me that berber carpet is awful for people with pets! Petra, by the way, is doing well, she is living with my sister's boyfriends' mom and is living the good life!

We got Sunny Puppy an electric fence. It's one of the ones that you can travel with, it plugs in the wall and you can set the desired circumference around your house that he is allowed to stay within. He learned it very quickly, that's for sure. It gives him a warning beep before he crosses the little white flags in the yard which is nice.

I am now on Facebook! I have joined the world's largest time waster! At one point, I just had to turn off the computer to step away from it! I usually hit ignore anytime anyone sends me a lil' green plant or redneck gift or pokes me or whatever so I'm not wasting time with that. I like it to keep up with everyone!

Ok, I s'pose that's enough catch-up for now! I have tons to do on my Friday! Smiles, dmt
