Rocking Chairs

I want to share this.. This is part of a posting off Paul Cardall's site.
A quick background on Paul: Paul was born in 1973 with a single ventricle, just like Bela. He has lived and survived longer than most. But his heart is now in failure and he is waiting for a transplant. He is married and has a daughter, Eden. If you want to be inspired and uplifted, read his blog!
This post just made me appreciate the little moments I have with my family more, and I thought it might do the same for you...


Our rocking chairs:

In lieu of our situation I said to my wife, “Go out and by our rocking chairs. I don’t want to wait to grow old with you. I would love to sit with you on the porch today!”

Lynnette brought home two beautiful chairs. The only problem is that we need a third chair for Eden. My sweet little girl is jealous and wants her own chair. She cracks me up. And so, tomorrow we’ll start looking for a third chair. The store evidently sold us the last two black rocking chairs. I'm sure we can find a pink one for our little diva.

Bela would be stinkin adorable with bangs. And I was no braver then you are, I just felt so bad looking at her keep pushing her hair out of her face. When she took baths her bangs were down to her lips. So I finally said enough was enough.

Go figure your apt is the next day. I am dreading it tomorrow, terrified actually. But yes, I will be there at the meeting on Thursday. It is just going to be me. The kids are on a strict bed time schedule so I dont want to throw them off because of it. Chris will stay at home with them, while I get a moment to get out and converse with others my age.

We will see you then hopefully.
