Today we want to take a moment to remember all those who have fought for our FREEDOM and the families that were left behind. Today we are free to do what ever we want, we have the right to read our bibles, to share about JESUS and so much more...it is ALL BECAUSE of the men and women who gave their lives to allow us to be FREE. So today while you are out at the lake, laying by the pool, enjoying your cook outs, say a prayer for the families left behind, thank a friend for their military service....thank the LORD for ALL HE DOES FOR YOU!

On Friday Giovanna and Gabby went to the new Intermediate school on a tour for THIRD grade!!! Can you believe it???? I cant believe that my two. I mean three girls will be in third grade next year.....Both of Giovanna and Gabby enjoyed us being there and seeing the new school. When we got home, William took out the convertible and we went on a afternoon date together.....lunch at Tokyo which was so yummy and a nice ride in the car on a beautiful day. It is so nice to spend the day with my man!

As many of you know we live in Alabama and were buckled down for the awful tornado that ripped through the state. We were all in the laundry room as the siren's were going off. I was a nervous wreck. The week previously we had another horrible storm/tornado that hit just 10 miles NW of us. Not good! It demolished a church and killed three people...friends of a friend of mine. Just horrible. William was out of town for that storm, but thankfully he WAS here for this last one. All of us, including lyndsey were in the laundry room/bathroom. We were listening to the news and following along with our laptop. When the siren's kept going off, and they were telling our area to take cover, I was just a mess! I am so sad to say that it totally destroyed the town just past us, this time to the NE of us about 12 miles. So many dead. So many friends of friends of ours....gone! Homes gone, family heirlooms gone, lives lost! Tuscaloosa was also hit so terribly hard, along with Birmingham and Culman. I just cry for all the lives lost! Terribly lost and such a horrible devestation. A young girl from our town had moved to T-town to start college in the fall...she and her room mate were sucked out of their apartment and killed. She was on the phone with her mom, while her mom watched the news coverage and telling her daughter to take cover.....while on the phone, Loryn told her mom she was so terribly scared, all the while her mom said I love you , it will be ok....and when the phone went silent, she knew at that moment her daughter was gone. Gone to heaven and no longer where her mom could hold her. Lyndsey, our daughter knew loryn...alot of folks around town knew her....everyone is so sad.... Please pray for the Brown and Mims family as they are mourning the loss of their daughters, and all the many friends of theirs.

Today, SIX years ago William and I were at Spence- Chapin in NYC awaiting the arrival of our new baby girl....ISABELLA FAITH! We were so excited for the day to finally arrive. We had no clue what our girl would look like until about 18 hours before we arrived.....and boy was she just a precious little porcelain doll. She was perfect!!!

Two peas in a pod! Gabby and Giovanna and of course the groovy girls! If you see one of the girls, the other isnt far behind! They sure do love each other! This is exactly what we prayed for when adopting the girls, that they would always have a best friend-sister by their side, when they grew up....Lyndsey and michael and Lily, would by far pass them up....but they would ALWAYS have a sister going through the same thing as them!!! Thank you Jesus for the miracle of adoption!
