a walking maniac

so, reese's grandma bought her a walker yesterday. she is *IN LOVE* with it. it's like she totally know that she's not attached to someone's hip, or strapped to a high chair... she knows that she decides where the thing goes. she gets to explore and discover what the wall feels like and what she looks like in the oven's reflection. she has independence! she will walk and walk and walk until her 'lil legs are so tired. she uses both at once, one at a time. she can turn it and walk backwards and sideways... i'll be honest, i may love it more than she does. it's a nice break for me :)

"we fill up our schedules with the mundane and ordinary, that we're irritated with God when He opens the door to the miraculous and extraordinary"
wow. God isn't trying to bless us at our convenience. He's not trying to make sure we've got our taxes finished, our business under control, and our errands done before He throws a wrench and calls us to do something significant, for Him. He doesn't check our calendar... and far be it for me to presume that He should.
we get so carried away with the …
