I can shop for items like this:
Yesterday at 5:15 p.m., right after I finished teaching my album track, my husband called with the news. We have a baby girl. She was born on July 1st in a remote area of Korea. I will have much more information in the next several days, and it will take 3 to 6 months to bring her home, in the meantime …
I lay awake at night and wonder about her.
And when I see pictures like this, I’ll stop and stare and smile and cry some very happy tears.
The long wait is over and I just went shopping …
This is the first official "Look what Mommy bought me!"
Happy, Happy NEWS.
Last night I had such an adventure. Shortly after getting the news, I visited a wildlife sanctuary called Safaris. I had Tracy and Diane in my class yesterday. Most people were scrapbooking pictures of their friends and/or family, but Tracy brought dozens and dozens of pictures of beautiful wild and exotic animals. During the course of the day, she told me a little about the place where she volunteers hours of her time — and last night I got to go! The owner, Lori Ensign obviously feels it is her calling to rescue and care for animals that have been abandoned by very selfish people that thought it would be fun to have a wild animal for a pet, only to realize down the road the foolishness of that notion. I could go on and on about this place and the feelings I had there, but these pictures will show you a bit of what I experienced ..
Me, feeding Twister the Tiger a snack of frozen chicken legs. Safaris calls them Big Cat Popsicles. Amazing.
Tracy and I playing with two baby Lemurs — so cute.
Later back in my hotel room, I get a knock at my door. It’s a gift all wrapped up.
Needless to say, this is why I love scrapbookers so much. Have you ever met a group of more caring and generous women anywhere?
