A very special way of life

We are in Thailand, where we often find ourselves this time of year. Lots of meetings, lots of vision-casting, lots of stiff necks (why are hotel pillows either too thin or too thick?) The kids have put in their time in child care, watching puppet shows and crafting bookmarks. Before we left home last week, Zion, who is five, said, "Mom, when we get back from Thailand, will we move again?" "No, Honey," I said, "we will still live in this apartment."

Aww, poor little guy, right? Actually, there is a pretty good chance our kids will grow up and thank us for the way they were raised. Every day, when I am not too exhausted to think past the next peanut butter sandwich, I think, 'Our kids are doing so well!' There is no greater joy in a mother's life than to be able to say that. Thank you, L0RD, for the many blessings in my life.

Ice cream is a nightly treat. Just 12 baht at the food court Burger King:)
