THE SEVENTH DIAMOND

Saturday Afternoon Smile!

I just took this picture this morning. At least he has his boots on! Have a great Saturday everyone~

It's Saturday Morning...I have a cup of coffee and I'm looking at what the New Bloggers are putting out.


Love my Saturday Morning quiet time and coffee. Eli is watching Noddy on PBS and I'm checking out some of the newer blogs. Eli said chocolate chip for the first time this morning, so he's eating chocolate chips, banana and milk for breakfast. Maybe not the best way to start a quiet day but I wanted to reinforce what a chocolate chip was. Plus it just seems like fun!

I love seeing starter blogs. I remember when I first started out with my blogger template trying to figure out how to upload pictures and link blogs. Hard to believe that was only 5 months ago!

Good Morning to you all my friends!!

Seven Things You May Not Know About Me....


1) My favorite sport is volleyball. I played all through junior high and high school.

2) My favorite foods are Chinese, Mexican and Sushi.


3) My favorite television show is Brothers and Sisters, followed by October Road.



4) I truly believe I have a soul connection to my home. Really..I think we are destined to be together.


5) I am completely disgusted by our gas prices and the governments ability to do absolutely nothing about it. I run my truck on Ethanol because I would rather have my money supporting American farmers verses oil tycoons.



6) I believe in ghosts.


7) I am currently obsessed with finding a Little Tikes Basketball Hoop at a garage sale...has anyone seen one??


Jane at 'Much Ado' is asking for prayer...

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post. I care for this woman very much. Please pray for our friend Jane at 'Much Ado' and her husband Derek. They have been waiting a very long time for their baby from China and now due to a setback in the Review Room, their LID has been pushed back for what sounds like a year. They are obviously heartbroken. I know that she would appreciate any kind words you could send her way.

When I Read This I Felt Peace Come Over Me...

Eli is just fine!


Thank you to everyone for your kind words and prayers. Eli did very well this morning and is home now, as active as ever!

Please Pray for My Little Elijah...


Friday morning at 6:45am we are reporting to the local medical center for Eli to have tubes put into his ears. I know that it is a very common procedure but he will be under with anesthesia and there is always a risk with that. We have had a horrible year with constant ear infections and there is fluid behind the eardrum that will not go away on its own, so we really have no choice. Please think about us tomorrow morning and say a prayer for my baby tonight.
Thank you all so much. I truly believe in the power of prayer from our group.

I Need To Find My Inner Balance...

I am starting to get that feeling that life may just be on the verge of overwhelming me. Work is crazy busy. We are having the biggest sales month since I have been there. We have no housekeeper right now which my husband thinks is just fine, but when I got home today after working until 5, dropping off the kids and rushing to a meeting at our church, only to come home at 10pm and find the house trashed...you're getting my picture here. Momma got a little upset.
I don't want to work all day and spend all night cleaning this house. I have four children I'd like to focus on. A new hire who has my position is coming in from Indy tomorrow for me to train for two days, did I mention my job is insane right now? And we're having him to dinner tomorrow night, did I mention my house needs a thorough cleaning? I won't even mention the rest of the weeks schedule. If I can just maneuver gracefully through the next two days, I'll be happy.
Wow, I feel so much better now after purging all that on you guys!

Thank You Secret Buddy!...








Thank you so much to our Secret Buddy! I have been looking for almost a year for a blanket for Sophia and I couldn't find anything that was soft enough. This blanket feels like heaven. I absolutely love it. And being an English Lit. Major in college, your card and quote are very cherished.

This is my Mantra...


Each one of us who stands in the endless line waiting for their child is making a difference, each one of us who brings a child home is making a difference, each one of us who supports others who are doing this is making a difference. Each one of us who supports organizations that support the worlds orphaned and hungry is making a difference. One child at a time....we are making a difference.
