Thoughts from my girl...

L is 3 and has recently started making comments that have me wondering what all she does know, or remember.
The other day as I was in the kitchen fixing up some lunch for her, out of the blue she said "I like having a mommy".
Just this morning she got up and as we were snuggling on the couch she said, " When I in China, I not have a momma." "I was really, really worried about that." "And I cried."
Isn't that precious? I have not explained much to her yet, as I wanted to get her lifebook done before I start to explain it all. She does know she was adopted, and is from China, but I want to have her lifebook done so she can see it all in pictures and detail as we explain it. I hope to have it completed in the next few months.
We always begin our homeschool day with a Bible and devotional reading. This morning we were reading about how God has plans for GOOD for us, and not of evil. Then I asked them what good things they think God has planned for them. L's response was this: "He wants to give a gumball to us!"
M immediately burst out laughing at this one.
I so wish to remember the times when life was that simple. When a gumball was all I needed to make me happy and content for the day.

Amazing memory! I think that's good, isn't it?
