Who will treat us to fruit smoothies?
Who will snuggle with Jenny when she has bad dreams?
Who will keep Matt in line?
Who will help me coordinate outfits?
Who will discuss football with Ben?
Who will inject a much-needed dose of good sense into family discussions?

I never dreamt she’d grow up this fast, and now she’s on the plane and gone.

Quote of the Day:
"Mom, are you okay??"
--Amy. No, I am not ok, but my friend Rachel says I’ll be able to go on with my life when I get that email saying Amy arrived safely


  1. Dorcus, my feeling are with you. But I'm glad times have changed.

    No doubt you will recieve an e-mail of Amy's safe arrival within 12 - 36 hours after she leaves.
    I sit in front of the computer and cry because of loneliness when I read about my children and see photos of my grandchildren within the same day they are taken, even though they are hours away. But we are blessed.

    I often have to think of the poor Mothers during the time of the Oregon Trail. Their children and grandchildren would leave for Oregon and they wouln't know for months or even a year or more if their loved ones were safe or even dead or alive. And photos were few and far between.

    Also, it's a comfort knowing our children are living for God, we are truely blessed.

    I will pray with you for Amy's safe arrival.

  2. Mice

    I think mice
    Are rather nice.

    Their tails are long,
    Their faces small,
    They haven't any
    Chins at all.
    Their ears are pink,
    Their teeth are white,
    They run about
    The house at night.
    They nibble things
    They shouldn't touch
    And no one seems
    To like them much.

    But I think mice
    Are nice.

    I guess this should be under another blog of yours but I couln't help but think of you when I read it, :)
