BROTHERS WILL BE BROTHERS...












I ABSOLUTELY LOVE TO HEAR THE BELLY LAUGHS THAT ABOUND IN OUR HOME. AFTER TIMES OF GREAT SADNESS IT IS SO NICE TO HEAR THE GIGGLES THAT MAKE THEIR WAY AROUND THE HOUSE... LIKE MUSIC TO MY EARS!
JOJO IS DOWN RIGHT SILLY AND ALWAYS HAS A WAY OF MAKING THINGS FUN AND FUNNY. HE HAS THIS LAUGH THAT AUTOMATICALLY MAKES ME START TO GIGGLE.
I OFTEN THINK OF HOW DIFFERENTLY JOJO'S LIFE WOULD BE IF SAMUEL HAD LIVED AND THEY COULD BE BUDDIES. WOULD HE HAVE BEEN BLOND LIKE JO OR DARK HAIRED LIKE LOU? I AM SO THANKFUL THAT REGARDLESS OF THE AGE DIFFERENCE JOJO IS SO CLOSE TO LOUIS AND CALEB. THEY ARE REALLY GOOD TO HIM.
WE SURELY HAVE OUR FAIR SHARE OF ISSUES WITH THE KIDS NOT ALWAYS GETTING ALONG PERFECTLY, BUT THANKFULLY THEY REALLY LOVE BEING TOGETHER AND HAVING BUILT IN PLAYMATES ALL THE TIME.
I AM GLAD THAT THERE WILL BE MANY MORE OF THESE GIGGLY MOMENTS AROUND OUR HOUSE TO WARM IT UP AS THE TEMPS GET CHILLIER...
BY THE WAY, I JUST FINISHED THE MARYBETH CHAPMAN BOOK, CHOOSING TO SEE, AND IT WAS SOOOOO GOOD! THIS IS THE BOOK WRITTEN BY STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN'S WIFE... SHE IS INCREDIBLY REAL AND HONEST IN HER GRIEF... YET VERY WITTY AND FUNNY AT THE SAME TIME. IF YOU GET A CHANCE TO READ IT, IT IS SO WORTH IT!

Oh Sara, I am so sorry I am behind on commenting and visiting. You are continually before my heart. And yeah...you are halfway through your pregnancy. Can you believe it! I am overjoyed for you and your family.

I love these picture of your sweet boys. I am so with you in thinking about what our wee little ones would be like today had God not called them home so quickly....what would they look like? What would the inter-child relations be like? Would we have gone on and had more children...would my Faithy girl be with us today? Questions I just sometimes ponder through the grief. But ultimately come back to the fact that God's ways are perfect and whereas I don't always understand, I trust Him and He comforts my heart.

May your heart be comforted in the midst of those deep belly laughs and giggles.

Much love,
Stacy

A friend loaned me that book...I am not sure if I want to read it or not.

I LOVE belly laughs. You can't help but smile when you hear them, no matter your mood. What a blessing that God thought of the belly laugh!
