We are about to go for the second garage sale. The first was phenomenal. I hope the second can be as well.
I have been reading a book that was recommended by another Christian, Adopting, Blogging Mom (I can't find the entry on her blog where she tells about it). The first Chapter was about getting rid of an attitude of complaining*,...so. Um...I'm not... Really. Gonna be able to talk or write much. Until I figure out how to be thankful...Thanks, Stefanie.
I was blessed last week to read some posts and explore some blogs where people really really reveal the tender places in their lives...the past couple of months have been pretty emotionally loaded if we were not in the middle of the adoption process.

2 Cups Sugar
1/2 Cup Shortening
1/2 Cup Milk
