I knew I couldn't find my computer for a reason. All it takes is a moment to clean my glasses. I really have to get use to the process of looking through lenses in the morning. I had this ridiculous thumb print in the center of my right "goggle" for use of a better term. I'm sitting here squinting. How ridiculous. My apologies, I digress.
So, this got me thinking about the things I've pushed myself to do in the last several years. Yes, I've felt nervous about them. Could I have crawled back into bed? Sure - but I would have missed out on some amazing moments.
Adopting my boys. Eric and I could have taken the safe route. We could have adopted infants or not have adopted at all. We knew the boys had horrific backgrounds and a lot of emotional problems. You would be amazed at who and how many people tried to talk us out of our decisions. We prayed, talked, cried, and jumped in with our eyes wide open. It's been hard. I won't lie about that. We have a very difficult road ahead of us; however, God would have never given us the boys if He didn't think we could manage somehow. We love them. We wouldn't change a thing.
I can't even imagine what my life would be like if I went back to bed and hid under the covers. It would be so damn boring. I guess I'd better stop rambling and get ready for the nursing home. If I can do this stuff I can certainly talk about scriptures for a few minutes.
