The only thing that is the same is change

About 15 years ago I felt my life was finally  getting some stability.  All 5 kids were old enough to discard all baby toys, beds, clothes, and worries.  David was old enough to baby sit and Bill and I had a little freedom.  I was able to clean the house while they were at school. fam on swing Then kids started doing their own laundry.  Soon each of them had a dinner night where they would make and clan up after dinner.  I was still busy, but I was able to include some selfish pursuits, like my BS degree, and training my horse.  A move out to Hays disrupted it a bit, but I quickly found my niche there.

Then came Danni.

That was a shocker!  9 years after the twins!  We really thought we were done and were making plans for our empty nest.  It proves that Heavenly Father knows what we need more than we do.  We needed Danni girl!  But we couldn’t have an ‘only child’.  She was so far apart in age from her siblings we thought she could use a little brother, so we had Enoch.  >tipsy talkin'>if i could hold time in a bottle

Enoch just turned 8. primary program 1 Danni is doing her own laundry and can make a mean batch of cookies.  Enoch is picking up his toys and brushes his own teeth with out being asked.  They are at school and that lets me clean.  My house is finally feeling like a house of order.  So I should know that this is a temporary situation….

No- I did not go through a secret pregnancy,  He is my niece’s baby.  Right now she and her husband are facing some legal allegations and Dean needs a place to live for while.  We have no idea how long we will get to keep him, but we are enjoying every second so far.  Needless to say – my life is taking another detour from the one I had planned.  I’m having to sacrifice a lot of my freedoms and selfish pursuits. I will admit, I have cried some about it all, but I know that I am doing a work that has eternal consequences – and that is what “it’s” all about.
