A request for a fire from a cute little guy cannot be denied.
Drew was asking his daddy for a fire over and over. How could he resist? I had to take the big kids to pack shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child at Five Below. I came home to find out that he had wanted an outdoor fire. So they were all three bundled up by the chiminea when we returned.
"I think this stick can go in the fire. What do you think, Daddy?"
My husband and I were sitting in church before Mass shortly after we were confirmed into the Catholic Church. Both of our gazes drifted to a pew close by where a family filled up the whole pew. Granted it was one of the shorter pews, not a full length one. I can't remember who said it to whom, but one of us said, "I hope we fill up a pew with our family one day." We agreed it would be wonderful. And so that is what we're hoping for...a pew all our own.
People think they have to find their soulmate to have a good marriage. You get married, and after 20 years of loving, bearing and raising children, meeting challenges- then you'll have "created" your soulmate. -Diane Sollee
