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..

  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.
