Tuesday night blessings…

  1. I met my birth-mother’s younger sister. I don’t think I have the words to describe all the emotions I felt when she hugged me. I can only say meeting her and talking with her (with Eric as my interpreter) was blessing :)
  2. Chocolate covered pineapple! YUM!
  3. The littlest made the biggest mess when we gave him a bath but he was all about giggling and smiling. This is so much better than him crying and being in pain! 
  4. My parents. I know they weren’t exactly thrilled when we decided to meet our birth-mother’s family and I understand their reasons but they were still supportive. Their support means so much and it makes this easier. 
  5. Eric is giving me the world’s best foot massage and we’re watching Pacific Rime because we’re cool ;)
  6. The kiddo’s reaction to the chocolate muffin we got him for dessert. He was beside himself and couldn’t believe the “ginormous muffin” was just for him. 
  7. The teenager. I’m glad I made the choice to meet part of my biology family but I’m so blessed to have her along for the journey. There’s a lot of newfound feelings but we’re doing this together.

4, 9, 32

Thank you!!

4. Ever been told “it’s not you, it’s me”?

Oh yes. I married that fool. I married him so hard ;)

9. What were you doing at 12:30pm this afternoon?

Napping. It was fabulous! I slept from 9:00am-3:00pm.

32. When was the last time a member of the opposite sex hugged you?

About two hours ago. My parents stopped by our room to invite us out for a late dinner. The men are sleeping, so I stayed in but my daddy hugged me before leaving and promised to bring me back some flan. 

…I’m still waiting for my flan, by the way!

Thank you, Crystal!!

5. What are you looking forward to in the next week?

Even though I’m still nervous and little conflicted, I’m somewhat excited over meeting my birth-mother’s siblings. We spoke over the phone today and they seem really nice…I’m hoping they’ll be the same once we’re face-to-face

46. What were you doing at midnight last night?

Nursing the littlest and unsuccessfully trying to put him to bed.

1,2,30,31 :)

Thank you!!

1. What would you name your future daughter?

For a middle name, we’ve already decided but these are my top five for a first name: Isabella, Luna, Hannah (Anna), Esther, Sarai

2. Do you miss anyone?

Yes. I’m missing my in-laws because I haven’t seen them in almost a month! I’m used to seeing them every week.

30. How is your heart lately?

Content. My poor heart has been through so much lately that being content is pretty perfect. I’m working on focusing on today rather than worrying my head over tomorrow…it’s an uphill battle.

31. Do you wear the hood on your hoodie?

Yes! Always.

1, 24 and 27 :)

Thanks, Veronica!

1. What would you name your future daughter?

We’re both set on Ahtziri for a middle name but we’re not so sure about a first name…it’s a heated debate! But we’ll figure it out, when and if the time comes :)

24. Are you good at hiding your feelings?

I like to think I am but I’m not. My face gives me away!

27. Are you listening to music right now?

No. My men are sleeping…does snoring count as music? I’m listening to their adorable snores ;)
