Just Embrace

You can now visit me at my new site. I have set-up the page, but I haven't published any posts yet. The site is www.justembrace.blogspot.com

Before I leave, I have a final comment. I know I have mentioned the four leaf clover before, and I have another neat story:

 We recently took a trip to Michigan, and although we had a great time, I found myself having a very difficult time (I'm sure that doesn't make a lot of sense). Anyway...this was the first time I really noticed Kaylee struggling a lot. She is so close to her brothers, and they hangout together all the time. However, while we were in Michigan, the boys were off playing with their cousins. It was a group of boys fishing, catching crayfish, looking for snakes, etc. Kaylee was not really into all of that and she was left without someone to play with. My heart just broke for her. Macie would have been right by her side the whole time. I could tell Kaylee was really sad. It really hit her when her younger 3 year old cousin started calling Kaylee her sister. It was so cute, but I could see that it bothered Kaylee. My heart was so heavy and I felt like I could cry all day. I decided to take the dog our for a walk near the hotel. As I was thinking about how crappy our situation was and asking God "the why questions" again, I looked down and there was a four leaf clover at my feet. I bent down to pick it up and next to it was one with five leaves. So I plucked them and took them to the kids. The four leaves always remind me of my four kids. I wasn't sure what to think of the 5 leaves, but none the less, it was neat to find. I love how God places these little reminders in front of me to reassure me that one day all will be well again.

my little reminder that I still have 4 children


  1. That is an amazing story Amanda. I remember all the times you would call me and tell me that you just found another four leaf clover when you were out in the yard and how it was such a blessing to feel that closeness with God. I believe one day he will reveal your "why" and it will all make sense. Wow, what a personal acknowledgment from God!

  2. I just got to read this story for the first time, a couple of years late but, to answer your question about the 5 leaf clover..could be for the little guy (or future foster)being blessed with such a superb family to love on him.:) It's neat to see how God works his handiwork in our lives and it's most evident when we look backwards.
