So last night I was putting together a package to mail to Ruthie that contained a photo album of her new family, M&Ms, animal cookies, and bubbles. My plan is to have the boys then give her animal cookies and M&Ms when they first meet her and we will also bring along more bubbles to our Gotcha meeting. I am hoping this will help her connect with us if she can remember the package and then recognize the items again. We will see.
So when I was sitting in bed stuffing the package, my blue bracelet broke and the beads went all over the floor. I put on that bracelet several weeks ago as a reminder to put the master before the mission and I have not taken it off since then. Trent laughed when it broke at the irony of the timing. It may have been coincidence, but I like to think it was God telling me that I succeeded. A friend of mine says "Coincidence is the hand of God in the midst of time". That works for me.
A friend of mine made this and sent it to me. I so need to get her to help me make a new header for the blog because she has some serious skills in this area. Hint hint Sara... The picture of Ruthie walking cracks me up because she looks so mad. No doubt I will see that face again- probably when the M&Ms and Animal Crackers run out.
