This morning, Troy was getting ready to leave for his prayer meeting and I was getting ready to go to Bible study. We were both in our wee master bathroom (trust me, the hardest thing about moving from our previous rental to our current rental was the loss of my majestically enormous master bath) and we heard Garrett coming up the stairs. He entered our room.
G: I'm not doing nothing. This always means something. Especially when he volunteers the information himself, unprompted. He entered our bathroom and I immediately saw what "nothing" was.
Me: (to Troy) Do you see what "nothing" is?
Me: Look at his face. His cheeks were covered in crumbs and red sprinkles.
T: Garrett, come here. Now listen, I'm going to ask you what you've been doing and you're probably going to get into trouble. But trust me, it will be worse if you lie to me. Okay?
T: What have you been doing?
G: (without missing a beat) I was eating tookie.
I came downstairs, sure I'd see a chair pushed up against the counter but the little thief had put it back in it's place to cover his tracks. Fortunately for us, he doesn't yet understand how to eat without getting it all over his face. As for the fact that I would have surely noticed a cookie missing...
If you look closely, you'll see that the center cookie, replaced perfectly in the middle of the pile, has several bites missing. Having trouble seeing it?
Is that better?
Thank you so much to the generous people who have used my Paypal button to donate to Matthew's adoption. Some of you are dear friends and others of you I have never even met. Your donations help us to realize that we are supposed to be fighting this fight. We truly could not be doing this without you. If you've been considering donating but only have five or ten dollars and don't feel like that would help us, let me assure you that it certainly would. Any donation, large or small, will help us meet our exorbitant legal fees. Again, we are blessed, humbled, and awed by those who have given any amount of money to help us fight.
Of course, above all, we are thankful to all who have prayed for our case. Please continue to lift us up in prayer.
