Sweet Dream

I had a very sweet dream last night. I was holding Naitile in my arms and had my hand on her face. When I woke up this morning my hands were in that position. I know I am being a little weird but I feel more in love with her today. I can not wait to have Naitile home.

We had family pictures done at the pictures at the park fundraiser. Which by the way was not as painful as I thought it was going to be (Thanks to Todd). But I hate getting pictures done. Anyway my mother wanted pictures of each of us (me and my two brothers) with our families. So my brother Mark was first with his wife Carrie and my two cute nieces and then my brother Scott was next with his wife Kristi and their two sons. So then she wanted a picture of Jarod and I and something in me was like "no" because we are all not here. Now I will have to admit that part of that was the fact I hate getting my picture taken. But another part of me was I don't want to not have Naitile not in it. So for now lets take our family picture in Haiti and put that on the wall until she can come home...........................................................I would be happy with that.

I pray Naitile knows that she has parents that love her!

So here is our unfinished family photo but soon it will.............Wait actually no it will not be finished because Naitile will be always growing and we are always changing. So really this is our family photo for now but it will not be this way for long!
I think sometimes we get so busy in the future we don't take time to be thankful for the blessings of God now. For example that I have two Parents that are alive to take pictures with and two brothers with families to laugh with. Wow we serve a good God
Take time today to stop and be thankful for the blessings that God has for you today. Trust me they are there.

Great picture! I know a piece of your heart is in Haiti, as is mine. I have pictures of Naitile from our recent trip. Email me at salzwedelfamily at verizon dot net and I'll send them to you.

That is a great picture! It'll be even better when she's in it with the two of you. Hold onto that sweet dream! :o)

I think that is a really good picture kelly! I totally feel the same way, when we have pictures done, because I don't feel complete yet....

Hang in there, of course I know you are, because you are so strong, and I totally look up to you for that!
