Cow Appreciation Day

Yesterday was cow appreciation day at Chick-fil-A.

If you dressed as a cow from head to toe, you got your meal absolutely free.

And for a family our size, that’s a pretty decent piece of change.

The girls have been home ten months now. I am in awe of how their lives have changed.

As a mom of many, I think one of the things I have enjoyed the most as we have walked through the days and weeks of the last ten months, is watching the girls develop relationships with each of their siblings.

Some relationships were slower to develop than others.

But last night, I was aware of how intertwined the girls are with all the children.

They are solidly grafted into the fabric of our lives.

Only God can take two very broken teens from the other side of the world, and place them in a family they have never met before and bind them together as beautifully as He has.

Not only do Eliza and Evangeline have a mom and dad who love them, they have brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles and grandparents and cousins.

They are a part of something bigger than themselves.

They belong.

And that has made all of the difference in their lives.

Blessings!

    Free food for a family our size? You can’t beat that with a stick! It’s too bad 2 of our boys were too cool to dress up, ’cause we had fun! Oh well, maybe they will next time.

    Love you!

    I thought the count wasn’t quite right. 🙂
    The girls look so happy – it’s wonderful to see those beaming faces! And I love Eliza’s haircut – very cute and frames her sweet face beautifully!
