"This life therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal, but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed." --Martin Luther

"mom....who's that?"

This is Charles at the end of July. Now picture another one or so inches in the bangs up front.

Tonight Charles had his first haircut.  I picked up all the kids at church.  Hailey came out of her room, looked a second and said, "Mom, who is that?"

I know it has been a super-de-dooper long time since we posted anything.  Partly, that is because I have been a part of a Facebook Liberian Mamas group where a lot of conversation has been happening.  Part of it is laziness-Brian has written a thing or two, but I have to get around to typing it up!  A part is that as I do therapy with Joe, I am able to process a lot with the counselor so I don't have it in my head needing to get out.  And of course, there is just life.  Brian is crazy busy with work and now harvest, we started school and have the yearly appointments to get through. 
I know I am feeling this restlessness again (no, it is NOT about going anywhere-take a deep breath grandmas!), some questioning about things that are going on.  We'll see if they come out in words.  Thanks for still checking in, we'll get back to you again!  (no promise though of soon!)
