Random thoughts....

I'm lying in bed unable to sleep for the third time this week because of the random thoughts in my head. These include, but are not limited to:

-Maybe I shouldn't have had coffee this afternoon.

-Why would I want to add my blood type to my facebook profile?

-I love watching Ted interract with the kids.... he is a fantastic father to all these little ones!

-I'm really going to miss David and his family as they travel home tomorrow, but I'm so happy for them!

-I miss my family and look forward to seeing them in a couple weeks.... can't wait for pizza and pinochle!

-Praying for a situation with one of our little ones.... God's will be done.

-Hoping all the babies with colds will feel better soon and that I'll have the energy to give them extra love, hugs, kisses, and patience

-Wishing I could let God be in control instead of worrying and getting upset about little things. Why is my first reaction not prayer every time? God is so faithful, yet He is far to often not the first one I turn to.

-Glad Matt, Chrissy, and Mira are able to spend time with family, but I would love some pictures sometime soon (hint, hint!)

-Why is the fruit here so much better than the fruit in America?

-I work with some pretty awesome people (both here and at home!)

-The internet is working right now and that makes me incredibly happy.

-How can I only have two weeks left here?! Mixed emotions about that.... I am so excited to see everyone at home and looking forward to a new school year, but I am going to miss everyone here and I will definitely be going through baby withdrawl!

-I sure hope sleep comes soon- 5:30 comes so early!

What thoughts are running through your head?


  1. We are currently working on our home study for THOGL. We are so thankful that you have a blog so we can keep up with what's going on around our (hopefully soon-to-be) kiddo! Please let us know if we can help in any way, and also let us know if any of the other caregivers have blogs as well. Thanks!!

  2. Beth,
    I am Annie's mom and I have to say, I am so thankful for you gals (and Word) and all the work you do. We are praying. Praying praying praying.

  3. Random thoughts huh?!?... You know I always have random thoughts. Let's see...

    - Why does the summer go so fast and the school year go so slow?

    - Why is my cat so crazy and is she part of a secret society of cats trying to take over the world?

    - How can God love me when I struggle to even love myself?

    - Why is standardized testing such a big deal? Aren't we all individuals?

    - Only about a month before I get to see my friend again. I know she is going to miss Taiwan, but she is missed here!

    I hope you enjoy your last few weeks there! I know God has you in His hands and is going to bless all those around you because of your Love for HIM!

  4. It was good to see you via Skype! =)
