Counting Small Blessings...

So, here we are in the quiet of a Saturday morning. Nantie and DH are upstairs asleep and the canines are all snoozing in their various places. It's just me and JuneBug. She awoke in a good mood (rare) and I'm relishing the happy, cuddling moments. Life in our little village has been rough..

To put it nicely.

On top of being 2 1/2 (and all the crazazy that goes with the age), JuneBug experienced some type of trauma in her past. We know little about Bmom (the county doesn't give up much info, of course). What we have been told makes us shiver over what Little Bug may very well of been exposed to. It breaks my heart and makes me furious at the same time.

Bottom Line: Turmoil. And we're taking the brunt of it.

For now, I am basking in the moments of calm and peace this morning. I pray they aren't fleeting. I will soak up the snuggles and silly.. because tomorrow our life gets turned upside down again.

And the real crazayzy begins.

Oh, Melissa. I'm so glad you're there to soothe the wounds of JuneBug and fill them with love.

I'm abiding with you now and next week during the crazazy.

I hope that things don't get quite as crazy as you are anticipating.

I'm praying for you, Melissa and for JB and everything her heart has had to deal with at such a young age. I don't think it's a coincidence that she's been placed in YOUR home. YOUR care. Under YOUR protection. I believe that your love (and DH and Nantie's love) will begin to heal her little heart.

What an incredible story! What an amazing heart you have.
