Confession Friday - Early Edition (cuz I'm not sure how I'll be feeling tomorrow)

I confess that I am posting this on Thursday, cuz I'm not sure how I will be feeling tomorrow after we hear about court.

I confess that this will be a short confession because I have had a extra tough week since our last court date.

I confess that I know the words to most Ronnie Milsap and John Denver classic songs. My parents were huge fans in the 70's and these songs played on cassette tapes in the car all the way from BC to MB (and back again) every summer.

I confess that I lived in Smithers, BC until I was 9 and then moved to Winnipeg, MB and have been here ever since.

I confess that I love being tall. I am 5'9". I find it very intimidating when I have to look up at someone to speak to them, especially tall women - It's just not something I am used to, so it feels unfamiliar and awkward.

I confess that we (cuz Chad had to help) finally RESCUED THE PRINCESS and afterward Sara said "That's it? That's all it does?"

I confess that Chad and I are planning a trip to Vegas this spring.

I confess that I hope and wish and pray that tomorrow brings wonderful news.

I've been thinking about you nonstop. You're in my prayers. <3

We will be praying, especially tonight.

Vegas has the most fantastic restaurants. Almost all of my favourite restaurants are there.

What songs will Sara know the words to when she grows up because of your current musical tastes?

Will be thinking of you, too!

'Sunshine on My Shoulders' was what my mom and dad used to sing to my brother and I as a lullaby. Ah, John Denver classics... how can you tell we were children of the 70's!

We are going to Vegas in March, 20-23rd. If you happen to be there, we'd love to meet up! I'm not a big gambler, but I love to eat at the fancy restaurants, lounge by the pool, shop, and go dancing!

Fingers and toes are crossed for you!

We are praying, with countless others, that Seth could hear your favorite songs, along side you, as you travel as a family. God bless you, you're all very special.

Maria said...

I confess i'm thinking about you guys and wishing for very good news tomorrow.

Derrick, Alysia, and Levi said...

I will continue praying for a miracle for you for tomorrow. Whatever has been the hold up, it's time for it to end so that Seth can be your son forever. My thoughts and prayers are with all three of you.

you know me... I'm here all the way.

I confess I know Bob Seager, Journey, U2, Heart and John Fogerty thanks to my dad!!! Now he listens to my music... I burned him a Florence and the Machine CD and he loves it;)

Kimmi said...

I so hope you have good news tomorrow. I can not even imagine how you will ever sleep tonight. I am looking forward to seeing you finally post that you passed court. Thinking of the three (well 4) of you tonight, good luck.

Hugs and good vibes your way

I know you do not know me, but I am praying for your family. It breaks my heart that you are going through this, someone recently told me that adoption is not for the weak at heart...they are very right and especially so in your situation! Keep fighting, we are fighting with you! You are not alone, there is a silent army following your story and praying for your family...stay strong!

Ramona said...

And I confess that just thinking about your court date makes me feel ill...and lift you in prayer. I hate that you are left hanging here for so long... and not over if you can get some shirt or condo or something- but about your little boy and his future and your future.

I confess I've never hear of Ronnie Milsap or Smithers BC. My dad liked ACDC and Glen Gould - quite a mix.

May the nightmare end tomorrow.
