Once the game is over, the King and the pawn go back in the same box.

A Mother's Prayer



I pray you'll be my eyes

And watch her where she goes

And help her to be wise

Help me to let go



Every mother's prayer

Every child knows

Lead her to a place

Guide her with your grace

To a place where she'll be safe



I pray she finds your light

And holds it in her heart

As darkness falls each night

Remind her where you are



Every mother's prayer

Every child knows

Need to find a place

Guide her with your grace

Give her faith so she'll be safe



Lead her to a place

Guide her with your grace

To a place where she'll be safe

These are lyrics for Celine Dion's song. I'd never heard it until yesterday. Many of my hopes and dreams for my little ones.

So it's been an interesting last little while. Dustin's been working less, and so we've been seeing more of him, and that's always good. :) Things with getting the Primary Program are getting done, so that's good. Miaya's doing well in preschool and dance has started again. We've also starting going to story time again. Sarah's got this weird thing going on, though, that had me concerned enough to take her to the doctor. She's okay as far as Dr Cannon could tell.  Then there was a large fire here in the valley. A friend of Dustin's and her family were evacuated last night, but I am pretty sure every thing turned out alright for them. It was really smoky last night, and we got head aches, but later last night, the smoke died down.

We got some really sad news yesterday too, though. Dustin's uncle passed away. It was a bit of a shock. He was relatively young. He wasn't in the best of health, but he seemed to be on a good path. I'm really glad we got to see him over Labor Day weekend. And I'm glad Miaya got to know him a little bit too.

I am so grateful for families being able to be together forever.

Probably. He was the one with a mustache. The cowboy. Uncle Jay.
