♥ Young Love ♥

I asked my twins to help me gather rocks to surround our
newest little tree in our backyard.
This is what I came out to ♥ find ♥
 With all of the trouble 10yo twin boys can seem to get into,
they still know how to melt my heart :-)

We also have a bit of young love forming around here:
well actually, they're really bird watching :-)
It's just wishful thinking though...they're both big chickens outside :-)

I have good news about Jordan :-)  My brother sent me an email today:
He's doing really good, they gave him an epidural last night & it's taking care 
of his pain now. They did surgery on him this morning & started closing his 
right leg. The left leg is a little worse. They do surgery mon, wed & Friday  to 
wash his wounds. I'll get you the address tomorrow.
He shared an address on Jordan's facebook page today, 
but my brother thinks they may move him again
so I'll wait to get a more permanent one.

Special thanks to everyone who has posted Jordan's photo
on your sidebar, and thank you to Serena at The Farm Chicks
for helping to spread the word about Jordan both on facebook
and in blog land. 
You're prayers are all helping so much!!
Blessings,
Marcia

Dear Marcia,
how lovely! :-) It made me smile and I'll keep smiling!

I'm so sorry to read about your brother! I have not been able to look around much after my surgery, so I have not seen this before. How terrable but also wonderful that they saved his life, and that he is back in the US recovering! I've written to him at FB, and I will add his story to my blog!

Keep up the good faith and know that I'm thinking about you!

Love, Cathrine :-)

Wow. Rocks are so often used as weapons, hurled in anger and hatred. The world could learn a lesson or two from your children! I am crying as I write this.
Jordan is an amazing, brave man. A Marine's Marine. I took his photo to the local VFW where it was placed on the wall. We are all praying for this brave soul.

What a daily blessing it is to hear good news about one of our own precious servicemen. I'm so thankful for Jordan. His sacrifice for his country has been enormous. Praying for him, his wife (we often forget the stress on the spouse) and his family. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of Jordan's story.

Boys are such a mystery to me, my twins just awe me daily- the love they have for me, is something... When the two of them think together, watch out! You'll end up with a heart around a tree!!! So sweet!

I'm always telling my boys that there are two teenage girls out there somewhere, that don't know yet, that they are going to be blown out of the water blessed by each of my boys!

So glad to hear that Jordan is continually healing, and still praying for he and the family.

I am so happy to hear there is some good news about your nephew Marcia!
Your twins are sooo cute and soo sweet!
I saw a cute poem once about how only a Mother could love 10 year old boys. I wish I could remember it all. My son was 10 at the time and it just really stuck with me.
Hugs,
Cindy
