today was a longggggg day.
work was yucky.
i sat in a crazy meeting that made me feel...beat down and exhausted.
the traffic coming home was horrendous.
my car's air conditioner is still not working.
and, i forgot my sunglasses.
i came home cranky and whiny.
i didn't thank my parents for watching my kids.
i didn't thank john for taking anna to softball.
i didn't even notice that my dishwasher had been unloaded and my house vacuumed.
instead, i complained about my day and whined about how much i hate my job.
i'm a total brat.
and i'm sorry.
mom, dad, john, kids, i'm sorry for acting like that.
there are MUCH bigger things to worry about than an awful meeting and a bad day.
in fact, tomorrow members of several russian agencies are going to meet with the u.s. dept of state and other folks to discuss the adoption ban.
they will be talking about the details, the families, the children, the policies put in place to deny the children the opportunity to be adopted by americans.
this is BIG.
i have been praying for this meeting since january!
will you please join in me prayer tomorrow and thursday too?
please pray for hearts to soften, for action to be taken, for the families in progress to be allowed to continue, for the children to be freed!
this may be our last hope.
love to you all,
