"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

Hmmmm.......My Little Girl Continues Growing Up

& this:

is the latest sign.

(& no, Ana's not reading it, but hang on a minute & I'll explain!)

Ana, at the AWANA store a few weeks ago, found & obtained what she thought was the perfect gift for her mother.

Later, after she gave it to me, she informed me, “Mommy, I saw that book, & I knew you really liked that author!”


I had no idea she ever paid attention!

But, she told me she had seen other books by the same author in my “stack” from the library.

Wasn’t it just yesterday that she couldn’t even say “library?”

In the blink of an eye, she has gotten old enough to really know what I like for Christmas!

It gets better, though, because, she also got me a beautiful pair of earrings.
Ones I have already worn several times.

I am just amazed!

I don’t know why this kind of thing catches me by surprise.

But, parenting, lately, for me has been such a challenge & things like this make it soooo worth it!

What have your children done lately that just happily surprised you?
