- This started out as a blog about our domestic adoption. So all of the older posts are about that journey. It was an interesting one, and it led us to our son, Jacob. My dream since I was a little girl was typical of most little girls. I wanted to get married, and have children and be a stay at home Mom. Although, not a very popular choice for a profession now a day, I find it very rewarding. As a matter of fact, every day is an adventure! I've been told personally that the stay at home Mom profession isn't 'work', but spend a day with me and you'll see just how much 'work' it is!!! It's blessed work!

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
I want to teach my son to be thankful and thoughtful. Since he was a little bitty baby, I would try to buy something for someone and have Jake give it to them. Today, I was at Walmart, hankering for some cake, and ran across these cupcakes. Knowing I didn't need six cupcakes around the house to tempt me any further, I decided that we would bring them tonight to Church and Jake would give them to his nursery workers. He is the only baby in the nursery, so sometimes I feel bad for one lady to stay in the nursery with him. I'm trying to train him to sit still, so that he can start sitting upstairs soon, but right now, he lasts through the song service and that is about all! So anyway, I purchased these cupcakes at Walmart for around $ 4.00. Then I bought these clear cups, and some quart size bags...all in all about $ 6.00. It took me about one hour to re-package them, make the tags and fix them up. I'll have Jake hand them out tonight after Church. I've been a Church nursery director before and it is a HARD job! A little thanks goes such a long way!!!! I hope as Jake gets older that he is thoughtful to people who are doing things for him, and thanks them! I think this is a forgotten courtesy, but one that is a mandate in the Bible!
