A friend pointed me to this great series of short videos, Insights and Gifts, from Karyn Purvis on the Empowered to Connect website. I’ve watched the first four and plan to watch the remaining ones over the next day or two. With each one only three to five minutes long, it is a small investment of time. Even at our stage post-adoption, I need to be reminded of the basics of bringing a child from the “hard places” into our family.
We are struggling a bit right now…and I’m weary. Oh for a day without drama! Maybe tomorrow. In the meantime, my blogging may be sporadic, but my kids seem to need me most of the hours of the day.
You will be happy to know that I took my own advice this morning. I woke up and the thought of running my regular route seemed dismal; but I knew the exercise would do me good. I gave myself permission to take a walk instead. I headed out of town on the hilly, gravel road that winds through the rolling wheat fields. It was raining lightly, but the quiet was wonderful. I prayed while I walked and came home more prepared to tackle the day. It is nearly 4:00 PM now and I am out of steam, I just need to press through a track meet, dinner prep, and two soccer games.
I hope you find these videos helpful. I’ll be watching them along with you. Let me know what you think!
