thursday thoughts (on not thursday)
I don't know what has been wrong with me, but I am having major writers block this week. I have sat down to write several times and...crickets chirping...nothing. Nada. Zilch. I think it is similar to how my kids feel when they make a colossal mess and I ask them to clean it up. They get so overwhelmed at the task that they don't do anything.
Until I suggest that I will help. And dole out specific tasks, "Ezra you work on the lego's, Eli you've got the blocks, and Ella, you just keep Zoe away from it all!"
So, if anyone wants to ask any specific questions that I can answer, maybe that will help me get started. Feel free.
Let me just say that visiting orphanages AFTER having gone through an adoption and possessing a knowledge of attachment and bonding and what is healthy and what is not will break your heart.
I have been able to do some simplifying for this month...we tracked out of school for the month, no additional photo shoots that the ones already scheduled, and I didn't do a Christmas card.
Why in the world do I have such issues with a stupid Christmas card?
Is it just me?
I decided that it wasn't worth it this year.
And so I didn't.
I did get to be part of the most fun photo shoot ever earlier in the week. Friends of ours adopted domestically and got "the call!" over the weekend and asked if I could be there for their first meeting.
Um, yes please...
Really, people...best photo shoot ever!
I think I'd like to create a niche in the photography world and just do adoption first meetings. Spread the word, ha!
We have a busy weekend ahead of us filled with a wedding for sweet friends, rehearsal dinner, a bridal shower, and our entire church is going Christmas caroling together.
