Blog Hijacked

Sorry for those of you who have stopped by only to find that my blog was no longer there!!! Well since Blogger has such wonderful customer service and they are all about keeping their bloggers happy I have been struggling with various people on the blogger group boards. I know just enough terminology to keep my blog afloat and I was walking in the dark with all the computer guru's and their technical terms and what have you!!! Well I'm back with a few more gray hairs that I will need to color now!!! Hopefully all is well and we will be around now for a while!!!

Random MeMe

Danielle started this and I was not tagged but she invited anyone who wanted to play to play, so here I am.
I am not going to tag anyone, but if you want to play here are the rules. Have fun!!

If you choose to participate, you must ask the person who tagged you 1-2 questions from the list (your choice...I don't want to be that bossy) in the comments section.

Be sure to post that rule if you participate in this meme. If you don't enjoy memes don't feel any pressure to do this one. Sure, I'll be crushed if you decide not to participate, but don't let my feelings affect your decision making. ;)

Well yesterday we hit the big "18 months" waiting!!!! Life is like vegetable soup, you can make it with many kinds of vegetables or just a few, kind of like life. Somedays there is a lot of stuff and other days not so much!!! We started this journey March, 2005 and here it is 30 months later and still no Darci!!! Now mind you new ones, we had a 3 month stop in the process because of a move that we made. I really believe that things happen for a reason and one of those is that if we would have proceeded then I would not be traveling with my travel buddy/friend "G". Our paths would have crossed on our agencies forum but that is a far as it would have gone!!! I have a new friend and travel buddy because of that stop, so for that I am happy!!! Each day that I wake up is one day closer to my sweet baby girl!!! I cherish each day that I have here on earth enjoying the things that God has given me, I do not take the journey that he has placed me on lightly. I have 2 beautiful daugthers who bring me complete joy. One lives with me and the other is in school in a different state, but we talk on a weekly basis and I do miss that she is not here with us. Our 3rd daughter is growing in our hearts and she grows a little bigger each day. Some days I think about her numerous times and other days not as much, does this mean I do not love her, NO!! I love her with all my heart and know that one day I will be united with her and she will be united with her forever family who will love her forever and a day!!! Officially we are 18 down and ??? to go!!!! Each day is one day closer!!!

How do you all stay up with comments. I have 63 feeds and from time to time I do post a comment, however, I forget where I post a comment and so I go on. I cannot possibly go through all 63 blogs and read their comments just to see if a blog owner has responded to my comment, can I?? Any suggestions (A NEW BRAIN??)
