update #1

I went to the doctor, who LIED to me and told me I only have sinusitis. I know Bronchitus when I cough it up, but if it makes her feel better to be disillusioned, then I will take her stinking drugs and not complain.

And yes, in case you were wondering, I did want to drag New Guy kicking and screaming with me, so that he could get some preventive "sinusitus" medicine, and does not bring his stinkin' germs back again. (Bits... don't you just love my use of quotation marks??? lol)

But I didn't.


I have been reading the blogs of the Compassion Bloggers in Uganga, and cried like a little baby all day long.

I'd like to believe that my crying is due to the fact that most of my hormones are off kilter because I feel ill.

But the heart of me says that, in spite of the fact that I don't have some initial overwhelming urge to go to Uganda or Africa, seeing these kids makes the maternal part of me want to go and rescue EVERY.SINGLE.ONE. of them, provide an education and love them with more love than I've ever imagined.

So,... see there? I'm not a meanie after all.

And P.S.... I've been sponsoring a child through Compassion for two years. Do you?? Do it. It's $32.00 a month, which translates into a week's worth of ridiculous lunches that you don't need anyway, or two really nice dinners, or a trip to Wal-Mart for just one thing.

I have kept up with the Uganda bloggers this week, too. Got a blog about it, too. I love the way God has given me a passion to pray for them ~ and I don't even know them.

I "love" the use of your quotation marks.

Love you, too.
Happy Valentine's Day

We adopted 2 kids through Mission of Mercy and it has been such a great experience. Ben has even drawn stuff and sent it to the kids. We love getting letters from them!
