Well, it has been one week. Since my last blog and the home is starting to fit. I am not trying to be ungrateful but it takes awhile to develop ownership on something you don't own. we didn't pick anything in the house we just walked into it. It is still very surreal when we actually sit down and rethink the whole process. Again, I am amazed and overwhelmed by the generosity of those who spent 4 entire days and nights trying to do this wonderful thing for my family. On the plus side, our big give came in #2 in the country for the biggest gives. Truly amazing what a community can do when they are so inspired. But today, we are back to reality. Laundry on the couch, a fine sheen of dust, floors that need to be swept and bathrooms cleaned. Well, I guess dirt waits for no man/woman. Thank you all for your generous comments about our family. Someone suggested we write a book entitled "It Takes a Thillage". What do you think? Anyway, the truth is we wouldn't be who we are today without Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in our lives. You have all given us a base of example in which we have been able to shape our lives. Thank you for the constant support and guidance in our lives. Without some of your great examples and for us learning through YOUR teachings our lives would have taken a much different turn. There is more news to share but you will have to wait until a few times from now when I can. By the way, we have another adoption coming up on May 9 at 12:30pm in American Fork court. Then, we will have 2 baptisms: 1 for Jacob, 1 for Jonathan then a temple sealing. We will let you all know of the dates.
