The little things

Slowly but surely things are getting done and checked off of the list(s)...in fact, some things are getting done which hadn't even made it on to the list yet.

One of the (many) things we were needing to get set up for the girls was their beds. Mark plans to make their beds, but now we're a little worried that we won't be coming home in between trips and we're going to lose out on a little preparation time. This has meant a little scrambling around here as we try to make sure everything is set up, ready to go for the girls, before we leave.

Yesterday Mark went and bought some of the lumber he will need for the girls' beds. But regardless, we still didn't have mattresses for them. I've been perusing Craig's List for awhile, looking for twin mattresses, but most people were only selling sets of mattresses with box springs...for way more than we wanted to pay.

Until this week.

Yesterday, I found a set of TWO twin mattresses (no box springs) for sale for $25 each. We drove out last night and picked them up from a parsonage. They've had minimal use and are practically new Serta mattresses. Now even if the bed frames don't get finished, at least the girls will have a place to sleep! :)

PRaise God for little things. I think they so much confirm what you are doing. I am so excited that you are so close to travel though I absolutely cannot imagine having to move at the same time! You are wise to go step by step with God and see his hand at work every day. I just love adoption!!
Joy,RR

Score! I am so excited for you - and totally jealous. I wish I could hurry up and learn this lesson in patience ;)
