I Cry at the Sight of Pink

The other day we stopped by the Disney Store with our boys to shop for a little bit. I was laughing with Zach and Landon about the cute new Toy Story toys and we were checking out everything that has wheels, is electronic, or has some kind of super hero power. I then rounded the corner and what did my eyes behold? Princesses! Pink! Sparkles! ..... and what did I do? I gasped and then the tears started rolling....the kind I felt coming right up from my heart...the kind you almost can't stop! My sweet husband put his arm around me and comforted me. Instead of rolling his eyes like he usually does (just to be funny and sorta push my buttons), he found just the right words to reassure my heart and stop the tears...and as usual, make me laugh!

Seriously though, I'm thinkin' there are a lot of tears in my near future if pink is going to do THAT to me every time!!!! I'm just going to have to keep a supply of Kleenex on me during all my Christmas shopping! By the way, did you see the ADORABLE Disney Princess set of Barbies at Target? AND the Snow White Barbie with the Seven Dwarfs included? Oh my stars!!!!

For in [this] hope we were saved. But hope [the object of] which is seen is not hope. For how can one hope for what he already sees? But if we hope for what is still unseen by us, we wait for it with patience and composure.
So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness;
Romans 8:24-26 (Amplified Bible)

  1. I am starting to feel the same way. When we first started our adoption I went crazy and bought our son some clothes (which will be a bit big for him when he gets home but he will grow into them). Now I try look the other way because it is so hard waiting for him, it has been over a year now that we started the process. At the end of the month I hope to be volunteering one night a week at the NICU to hold the babies, my arms are aching for my son. Have a blessed week.
