That is about how my head feels ... I have so many list going on right now that I am not sure I can keep them straight ...

list for school
list for homework
list for school events and special items for school
medical doctor list for Maggie, Joseph, and myself
147 List
147 List
Amazima list
football schedule for Jeremiah
football schedule for Elijah
the RETURN call list is just more like a book
adoption question list

and well you get the picture ... It is funny how one day I have this all figured out and I am smiling and feeling pretty proud of my SKILLS and then other days the list get all jumbled up and I can't make heads or tails of it ... I filled out a MARVELOUS ME form for the wrong child and sent it to the wrong class last week ... lol   ... Just all reminds me I am so normal, flawed, and trying to do my best ... 

We are doing really well here and I feel like Joseph and Daisy are settling in to their family and their daily life ...  The one thing never on my list is Jesus, because He is not something I can check off, but someone I lean on, seek to spend time with, and genuinely want to make sure is PART OF ME !!!

Hope you like the new blog make over ... THANKS COLLEEN !!!  I hope this will help you to navigate our life easily, give encouragement to you by sharing our adoption journeys, and allow you to check in on 147 Million Orphans periodically (so much is happening there) ... 

blessings on your week sweet friends !!!!

Loved how you worded some days you are smiling and got it together and the next everything can be all jumbled... really can relate : ) Lists, lists, lists. Great reminder too that only one thing is needed.. and that is Jesus.
