Dominic King..

Sometimes i wonder what i'm doing here...
I mean in my life...
Like i know there is a place and purpose for us all and i wonder am i here, have i fulfilled it yet?

Our children desperately want a pet...

We have a fish.
His name is Dominic King, but you can't pick him up and squeeze love into him. He doesn't catch the ball or wag his tail when you come home...

I hear them repeat what we've told them to others "One day when we have our own place I'm gonna get a little kitty and call her Poncho, and Elijah is gonna get a guinea pig and Moses is going to get a boy dog"....

So we've got a loose plan and a suitcase full of dreams and are watching for an open door and being mindful of those that close and lead us elsewhere...

My beautiful husband wrote this down today;

'Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.' It's from Proverbs 13:12
So i know it's gonna be Ok...sometimes you just lose hope..that's what we have each other for..


  1. uh oh - you know what magic happens when your heart opens for a pet.

    Expect a furry foundling on your doorstep very soon.

    You watch.

  2. Oooh yes i feel him getting closer already....

  3. There is such beauty in your honesty Jemima. Never give up dreaming. You never know how many people you will influence along the way.

    I hope the kiddies get their furry animal to love very soon. What cuties. We have much the same story here.


  4. ha yes he is blue too, but i promise i am not now dyeing the fish..
