We have been going to the church Mikee grew up in the past few Sundays so we could do the Purpose Driven Life as a couple with other couples in a Sunday School setting and it has really been great so far.  I read the book before several years ago and enjoyed it but this open discussion will be great.   Even though we aren't members at this church the hospitality has been unbelievable!  I can't say enough about how welcoming this group is and makes you feel a part of the church.  

I will be starting a new Wednesday night girls Bible study and this is the book we will be doing, Girl Talk.  I can't wait just the cover makes you want to pick this book up.  I will let you know how it goes.  I look forward to the fellowship with other Christian women.  

Hope you are all having a great start to your week.  I am going to finish up some organizing I started a while back and get some things checked off my list.   I didn't get much done last week except get ready for the shower I hosted this past Saturday because I wasn't feeling so well.  I was worked up and upset by the exchanging of some emails with my Dads sister this past week that weren't so good.  You see she hasn't spoken to me, my husband or Brady since the day of my Dads funeral and I couldn't tell you why if you asked me, she has never told me.  She and I have never been close and obviously will never be.  I choose to be happy and not have negativity in my life and even though it breaks my heart for Brady and me not to be a part of my Dads family I have to do what is best for us.  My old preacher told me along time ago sometimes you need to break away, I did that from several family members  way before my Dad was sick and do not blame any of this on his death, it was my choice.  It is what it is and what it always has been its just that now things have been twisted and the one person I have always looked up to and counted on and thought of as a Mom is gone to because of things said and taken the wrong way.  I think the one sister has always been jealous of the relationship my Aunt and I have always had.  I am really struggling with this for allot of different reasons.  Here we will more than likely bring home a new addition to our family this year and they will not be here to celebrate with us, Brady has many things going on that she isn't a part of anymore and I hurt for him.  I will continue to pray daily for all of my family that this will work out and we can move forward, I know allot of it is grief and misunderstanding but it still hurts. 
For those of you who have asked about the adoption I would love to be able to tell you something but we haven't heard anything.  Thanks for your prayers and please keep praying for us, I know there is a child somewhere waiting for us and in Gods time it will be.

I'm sorry about the troubles with your family. Sometimes there are people in our lives that you just can't reason with and I think you're right that it is best to just cut them free. Even though it is hard. I'm sorry.

Cyndi, you seem to be handling everything really well. I hate that for ya'll though. I know how fabulous you are and it's their loss :)

We'll keep praying for your new addition-and that it's sooner than later!

Email me about lunch when you're feeling better!
