The last few weeks have been full and stressful. With camping, planning the parents 25th anniversary party, and a handful of family issues. I have been going crazy. All the "planning" stuff is over. We leave for vacation on July 8 and I am so ready, except for my teenage brothers who are coming..who we will be babysitting more than our kids. None the less, it will be vacation.
If you guys could all pray: Josh's brother Isaac had moved to Florida awhile back, he is only 18 and had no plans and now he is in jail in Florida...far away from home and anyone he knows. We talked to him a few weeks ago and he had nothing, his wallet got stolen, he was living on the beach, eating whatever food he could find. It was sad to hear but, he really needs to learn some lessons. He was taken to jail on possession of cocaine. We aren't sure how to help. He is someone who just takes, takes, takes and isn't thankful, and doesn't even realize you've helped. He left Ohio because of some issues here, so he may be in big trouble for running. His bond is only $100, but sad to say no one is willing to help him out. Are we all wrong?? Has anyone been in a situation like this? I want to write to him and let him know he is loved, prayed for and not forgotten.
Today the kids wanted to go outside, so I went out and started pulling the crack weeds..you know the weeds that grow b/w the cement slab on the driveway. (We have LOTS and they were like 6 inches high). I was pulling them all out and Merci realized there were lots of ants. She decided that the ants lived in these weeds...they really live in the dirt under the weeds and I just disturbed them. So she precedes to make a big deal out of it saying, " Mom you are taking away the ant's homes, you're killing them...Mom these ants are so mad at you." It made me giggle to think that these little, tiny, pesky creatures could be so mad at me!
Oh by the way spell check works again..for today!!
