So, healthy food has kind of been a hot topic around our house the last few months. Jason and I have both been trying to lose the weight we gained after two months in the USA with endless Chick-Fil-A and Memphis barbecue. Also, I've realized what a HUGE difference the breakfast my girls eat makes in their ability to concentrate on school work through the morning. Especially Maddie- seriously she could be like a case study or something for high protein meals. The difference between a sugary cereal and something like a hard boiled egg or peanut butter toast is truly phenomenal. But I digress... I'm prompted to tell you all this in order to give you the background for Naomi's quote for the day. Jason, Abbey, Maddie and I were sitting at the dining room table playng a game after supper, and I heard the refrigerator open and stuff being moved around. I went into the kitchen and there stands Naomi holding my massive bag of Nestle chocolate chips from Sam's. She hold it out to me and says, "I'm still hungry". Unfortunatley for her, she had eaten a great supper but had also already had dessert. So I take the bag from her and started to tell her that she couldn't have the chocolate but she could have banana, apple, pear... Well, I barely had the words out of my mouth when she slumps her shoulders and drops her head as only three year old Naomi can and lets out a hugs sigh. "But Mommy," she says, "I don't WANT somefing healfee!"
I am blessed beyond measure with a wonderful husband, Jason, and four beautiful daughters, Abbey, Maddie, Naomi and Anabelle. We are living our dream of living and working cross-culturally in the Middle East. Life is an adventure and never dull. As a child of the Eternal King of Kings, held together in the palm of His loving hand, I am a work in progress, thankful to share my journey with anyone who wants to listen.
