A few words & then THE BOYS

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SKIP MY RAMBLING AND GO RIGHT TO THE PICTURES OF BRADEN AND TRISTAN!!
I just realized that I haven’t shared anything since just after I got home. Sorry about that. It has really taken me quite a bit of time to get back to normal (not that I ever was normal before....hahaha.) Actually, India gave me a lot of time to think and many of those thoughts have really effected me in more ways than I can put into words. I think spending 5 weeks halfway around the world, away from everything and everyone familiar to me – with at least half of that time alone in my hotel room – gave me a chance to reflect in a way I have never done before.

I think I have learned to love more deeply, laugh more often, and forgive more completely just because I have spent so much time alone with God and learning more about those things than I ever did when I was surrounded by all that God had given me. Now, I love the silence and the cherish that time more than ever before because that is when I know God can speak to me and I can hear Him more clearly. I don’t ever want to lose that and I know I’m not explaining in any way that does any justice.

I won’t get all mushy here. I just wanted to share a little of what has changed on the inside. And now to lighten the mood, here are a couple of recent pictures from when my sister and her husband Josh came last weekend. They brought my gorgeous nephew Tristan and he and Braden got to play together. They are absolutely adorable together – I pray they grow up as close as I did with my cousins!!
We tried to get pictures of their faces, but that is not possible....they are MOBILE! So instead I'll just add some captions.
For the most part the boys got along great, even when Braden saw the need to tackle Tristan. Tristan - being the most laid back baby in the whole world - just kept playing...as if having your cousin kissing your behind is an every day ocurrence.


HEY ~~~ what are these white things that hang in front of the windows????? They must be very special because all the BIG PEOPLE keep telling us NO!!!
Quick Tristan, look at this one before my Grandma moves us away again!!!

Just think......some day we'll get to play outside, just like the big kids do.

Now if those aren't the cutest pictures ever stolen from someone else's blog, I don't know what is!! :-)

I think they'll be good friends. So far so good.
