Mercies from Christ never stop, do they?

899. the encouraging words and sneaky thoughtfulness of that dear, dear husband of mine

I really have few words right now. Just so thankful, overwhelmed with gratitude and joy to Him, and to him...this man. Oh, does he ever have my heart!

Your comments are precious to me, as are the birthday wishes! Thank you over and over.

900. kind words from friends today - here, by email, phone call, text

Today, in a little courtroom here Back Home, BB and I sat before a judge with AH between us, our attorney beside us, my parents behind us, and we welcomed our new daughter legally and finally into our family.

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow. Indeed, those blessings overflow so that I hardly know what to do with myself.

Headed back to Texas on Friday. I hope to write a thoughtful post soon, with photos from this day.

All my thanks to Him, to him, to you all....


  1. Happy Mother's Day, you are an inspiration.

  2. PS, All of my clocks are set 10 minutes fast (drives my family nuts but I do it for me) and your birthday wish was 8 minutes too early as a result, I had to laugh when I saw the time post of 11:52 but my family had the bigger laugh :) It sounds like your birthday was super memorable, finalizing the adoption. Easter, birthday, Mother's Day, the perfect trifecta of happy.

  3. Thanks Stephanie, and Thanks Merlin!! (yes, QUITE a cup certainly overflows!)
