Sometimes I just can't believe how blessed I am. Really. Sometimes I just stop and think "is this for real, is this my life". These kids, they're mine? This amazing husband, he's mine? There is so much love in this house.
The scene below is Louise kissing Katriel. If you've met Louise you might assume she's biting Kat (Louise has a bit of a mean streak), but this is definitely a kiss. With a little spit for good measure. It's something that happens a dozen times a day. These girls adore each other. Grace and Haven are the same way, always hugging and dancing together. And Manny and JoJo can't sleep if they're not cuddled up together sharing a pillow.
Now it's not all sunshine and flowers around here. It has been a really really really hard 5 months since we came home with the girls. Some stuff you probably read about, some stuff I still can't talk about. Some stuff that will be coming in future posts. But in spite of all the frustrations, the trauma, the junk of day to day living, I am blessed.
Sometimes I just need to stop, take a breath, stare at some beautiful faces like these and let the love soak in.
