Family


I have malaria so I have been in bed for 2 days. Whenever I have malaria it makes me home sick for some reason. So I lay in bed imagining what my family is doing at home. I was on my computer tonight and checked to see if a few of my favorite blogs and websites were updated. One of those is the Duggar Family with 17 kids. I love looking at those pictures. Maybe we only have 10 kids, but just seeing pictures of a large family makes me so happy I came from one:-) In the midst of me longing to spend just a day with my parents and brothers and sisters, God reminded me what a gift he has given me. 48 precious daughters/little sisters! I can hear them right now squealing with joy. They have been playing hide and seek for the past 2 hours! They came knocking at my door this morning saying "Mana Ana! We don't want to ask for anything, we just want to pray for you!" (They have been so good to not knock on my door while I am sick) Tonight when I went to see what all the noise was about (they apparently "found" whoever they were looking for) they said "Mana Ana, are you better?!" I said I was a little better, and Olga said "Yes, it's because we prayed for you!" And so it is:-) What sweet darlings God has given to me. I have a large family here, and I couldn't be happier (unless of course the rest of my family, in America, could come live here too!).

Anna! I didn't know you were sick! It's too late to call you but if you're up and read this, let me know if you need anything! Bless you! When you're better, let's play games or make cards or make something fun to eat - we don't hang out enough!Love, Laura

Hi anna. hope you are feeling better. it's so interesting that when i posted about praying for you in regards to malaria, you end up with malaria :( i know that God heard our prayers and is going to give you a very quick recovery! You'll be in my prayers!
