for the 100th time

I think when our parents would tell us "for the hundredth time..." there was more to that then I give credit for. You know how you've heard something that many times, but one day, it kinda just sinks in and it is like a brand new revelation? Well, I have had one of those moments lately.
I think kids have to try some foods like 15 times before they bite and they say students sometimes have to hear something like 10 times before they learn it, and Jolenes have to hear something 100 times before it feels like new information.
What I heard was from my mother in law, Linda, who is quite a good one. The other day she spoke such a truth that really helped me have some timely perspective and comfort. I am sure you know all that has gone in our family, even such she maintains the strength enough to share these words;"God didn't promise us an easy life, but that he did say that he would be with us through it all." Hope this is your hundredth time to hear it to-maybe it'll mean something.

Thank you Jolene. That statement brought tears to my eyes and ministered to my heart right now. We have a rough road ahead with the birth of Heavy... but God is with us.

Love you and your boys.
