That's how I feel about this week and really about life in general. It's just speeding by while I try to grasp it tightly and enjoy the moments. It doesn't help when Christmas music starts being played the day after Halloween. Wednesday will be mine and Victor's 14th wedding anniversary. Are you kidding me??? 14 years! In ten more years, I'll have been with him longer than I was without him. CRAZY!

I think it's been almost a week since I picked up my camera; that's pretty much unheard of around here! I better try to make up for that today.

Today we are putting the finishing touches on our Operation Christmas Child boxes and seeing just how much we can really stuff into a shoe'd be surprised. I think we'll deliver them either later today or tomorrow. The kids still have to make cards to put inside.

And since I was on the subject of rushing life...why not get in the holiday spirit by checking out some of last year's Christmas pictures?

Today is National Adoption Day . "National Adoption Day is a national day of celebration of adoptive families and an opportunity for courts to open their doors and finalize the adoptions of children from foster care. Since 2000, more than 30,000 children have had their adoptions finalized on National Adoption Day. This year on November 20, families, adoption advocates, policymakers, judges and volunteers will come together and celebrate adoption in communities large and small all across the nation.and with that being said, I will close this post with a few quotes."(taken from ) Happy Adoption Day to all those who "officially" become families today!

"The greatest experience, the one which shakes a soul with hopes and fears, the results of which are never ending, and incidentally, the one which pays the biggest dividends, is to be found in the adoption of children."
