Ryley’s church Christmas performance went wonderfully…What a great little choir they have!
And Ryan and I breathed a huge sigh of relief when her solo was over. He squeezed my hand, and I could tell he was so proud of her, singing so bravely in front of 1,ooo people at the age of seven. That is something that neither of us would have ever done!!!! :-)
“Countless days on a journey that led so far…
Endless nights they traveled to follow the star…
They did not find a palace, just a humble village home,
And searching for a king, but finding a Child, no crown, no throne,
Still they bowed down!”
It was a beautiful Christmas service!

Tonight’s Ryley Quote, from Which My Love for Her Tripled:
I was making chili, so I was busily chopping up an onion. Ryley entered the kitchen and immediately recoiled from the onion’s strong smell.
Under her breath, Ryley muttered, “You really should be doing that under water.”
“What did you say?” I asked.
“Oh, well, I just read in a book that chopping an onion under water keeps it from making your eyes water.”
“What book?” I challenged.
“The Boxcar Children,” she answered.
She’s learning things from books. And I love her for it.
