|The day we found out SJ was a 20 wk old boy baby|
|Ruby and Libby, 12 and almost 14|
Change my heart, oh God, make it ever true, may I be like You:
You who are never irritated or annoyed by what sacrifice for our families involves, how life ebbs and flows and requires constant figuring and refiguring to pull it all off,
Your Holy Spirit who gives- in a limitless way- without doing the math.
Forgive me, Lord, for these moments of humanity and weakness, and make me über grateful for the extra privileges that come from the extra responsibilities of managing our large family's logistics, and being the mother of many.
|Our darling Josephine Grace, 8 1/2, next to SJ in the belly at 24 wks gestation|
