One would think that after being home
from our last trip to Ethiopia over 6 months ago,
and our first trip to China almost 5 years ago,
our last trip to China 3 years ago,
that I would be able to get over
You'd think I'd be able to lay down at night
without crying myself to sleep.
You'd think that as I feed
my babies breakfast before school,
that I wouldn't have tears roll down my face.
I am thankful that my babies are home,
thankful that God choose to bless us
with these silly, silly kiddos.
Thankful that I get to tuck them into bed every night.
Thankful that I get to greet them with hugs
You'd think it would get easier,
but when I look into the eyes of
I am constantly reminded of the babies
who don't have any one to
teach them right from wrong,
no dinner table to sit at,
no one who cares if their feelings are hurt,
no one to love them.
It doesn't get any easier,
thank God it doesn't.
