From the rising of the sun to its going down
the Lord's name is to be praised!

Just Cozy...

Esmé enjoying her is probably not as warm and cozy as it looks because she usually waits to drink it once it has cooled off (or requests more milk in it).  Sometimes she decides it is 'too old' when it has sat too long and asks if she can put it on the counter.    Funny girl.
This little love has been having a rough time lately being 'sandwiched' between two older girls and a cute baby sister.  This can create some unlikable moments in parenting and I have to be more intentional about being tender towards her.  It is so easy to become exasperated in these moments and to my shame this is more the norm for me.  I love this lady and with God's grace, I will help her become more secure in her place in the family.

AnnaMae is struggling with security too. That little love bucket of hers is hard to keep full some days. I'll be praying for you and Esme! Hugs,Anita

I like this Mel! Siah and Naddie seem to be in that exact position. Thank you for the reminder!
