there are no words

we were doorbell ditched tonight. i have absolutely no idea who did it. i honestly probably couldn't even come up with a good list of possible suspects if i had to. but it doesn't matter. that's not the point, and i know that. i'm touched. truly, truly touched.

it was a big garbage bag. there was a toy for each kid in it. great toys. toys they'll all love. plus gift cards for us for and some cash. i was thinking, this will help a lot in getting us to california for christmas. i don't even know what to say. i was moved to tears when i realized what all was in that sack.

i can't describe how blessed i've felt in the last few years. there have been so many thoughtful people in our life giving and sharing and helping out, sometimes anonymously, sometimes not. the lord has been kind to us. and i'm so grateful for that. i'm also grateful for the people who are generous with their time and resources, and choose to be an instrument in the lord's hands. i really hope someday we're in a position to help others as much as we've been helped. though i know, there are always other ways to help.

what i'm trying to say is, thank you. whoever you are. i don't know if you'll ever see this; i'm guessing not, but thank you. from the bottom of my heart.

such a boy...

keith was moved to the back bedroom, which means his stuff got moved to the tall dresser. he's just barely tall enough to peek over the top drawer when he's standing right up next to it. he put his shirts in that drawer and his pants in the next drawer down. the bottom two are empty. i asked him why he didn't put his stuff down lower.

he said "i can reach up there."

"but you can't see what you're grabbing," i said.

to which he responded "it doesn't matter."

you'd never hear alexa say that, hahaha.
