Last Sunday, we had a birthday party for Samantha and Austin. Their birthdays are just one day apart, so Samantha decided to have a combined party. Most of the girls and boys ball teams were here and I think everyone had a good time. We had Wii in the living room and corn hole in the back yard. The weather cooperated so everyone just moved from outside to inside and did whatever they wanted. You know how teen ages are---I would have never tried to "plan" activities for them!!! Samantha had a some kind of virus and by the end of the afternoon she was completely exhausted, but I think she enjoyed it, too.
I know this is late but I have been subbing all last week and until Jess gets out for Winter Break this week!!! Hope you are all having a good week. Please continue to remember Laurie in your prayers. She is trying to get into see another Dr. that will hopefully give her some NICER news!!
A meeting was held quite far from earth, It was time again for another birth. Said the angels to the Lord above- "This child needs much love, her accomplishments she may not show. And she'll require extra care from the folks she meets down there. She may not run or laugh or play. Her thoughts may seem quite far away. So many times she will be labeled "different", "helpless", and "disabled". So let's be careful where she's sent. We want her life to be content. Please Lord; find parents who will do a special job for you. They will not realize right away the leading role they are asked to play. But with this child sent from above comes stronger faith and richer love. And soon they'll know their privilege given in caring for their gift from heaven. Their precious charge so meek and mild is Heaven's Very Special Child."
