Forgive People

Forgive people in your life, even those who are not sorry for their actions.
Holding on to anger only hurts you, not them.
Learning to let go…..I need these words branded on my heart and brain!  It seems like I’ve entered some unreal phase of life where things just aren’t letting up….it keeps going and going.  Some just call it “the teen years.” To think I was so disillusioned to believe that these years would be enjoyable.  Man, was I wrong.

So….deep breathing.  Lots of ibuprofen. Find the joy where ever I can, try to stay positive, know this will pass, retirement will come someday with an empty nest….try to enjoy these moments…write a book and sell if for thousands to pay off the ever growing bills of life…..because if I actually wrote it all out – people would think I wrote the best fiction novel around!

Anthony ~2014~

Love this boy….he is my son….
 I love his deep brown talking eyes.

He can make you laugh. He makes me laugh and pull out my hair!
He is growing up, sometimes it scares us! A Senior this year also taking college classes.
Dear Heavenly Father – thank you for bringing this son to us through the gift of adoption. 
We love him deeply.   
I remember the dark scared eyes when he came, so protective of his little brother. 
He is growing toward manhood and knowing what he wants to do with his future, gives him purpose. 
He keeps us on our toes in so many ways, and we pray that Christ and church will be a constant in his life path. 
May we have the wisdom to continue to give him wings to fly and the ability to let him loose, despite fears we have. 
Let others see his awesome heart and experience his kindness.
He is a good kid so when the path forks, we lift him to you to guide him down the right path.  We love him greatly and wish only the best for him. 
Thank you for the gift of Anthony.

Tobias 2014

Love this boy….he is my son….
I love his soft brown eyes. 
His kindness can be humbling.
He is a teenager, walking the path of life.
Dear Heavenly Father – thank you for bringing this son to us through the gift of adoption. 
We cherish him greatly.  So long ago he was but a tiny boy, clinging to my neck. 
Now he is growing toward manhood, looking for his path in life.
He has dedicated his life to Christ and is working hard at keeping his path weed free. 
Keep him safe from the worldly temptations around him.
Let others see his kindness and awesome heart. 
Help our giving child grow into someone who will make the world a better place. 
Take his gifts and show him how to use them to your glory. 
Give him strength when weak times knock. 
Let him always know how loved he is! 
Thank you for the gift of Tobias.
