Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Today is Anna's 12th Birthday!

I cannot believe the little girl who woke up at 5 years of age on her first morning home, declaring "I have no idea what I'm going to wear today!" and introducing us to the delightful world of raising girls, is now 12.  TWELVE!!!!! WOW!  She has grown up from the tiny little girl we brought home so long ago.

So, our day began with the very first clue. :)  The girlies LOVE to read mystery books with all sorts of clues.  Today, we made things a little harder since Anna is getting older.    She said she wanted it to be tough.... so here were her clues:

This is just all SO cute! It touched my heart that her gift is that doll. My Anastasia LOVED, loved, loved playing with dolls...in fact, even last Christmas ALL she wanted was a full-sized baby carrier for her doll, but within a couple of months, she suddenly realized she was nearly a "teenager" and all of that stopped. So sad!

Enjoy your little girl while you can.
