Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God. Psalm 84:3

Nicky's Hero

Let me introduce you to Nick's hero: Kelli. The unthinkable happened Friday, the kids where swimming in the pool and I was sitting at the picnic table on the phone when Nicholas reached for a toy and fell into the pool! Kelli grabbed Nick and he grabbed her and with out a sound she held his head out of the water and tried to swim back to the steps. I jumped in clothes and shoes on and Kelli says to me its okay I got him! Nick was not half as scared as I was and Kelli saw that I was crying while hugging and kissing them both, she pulls away and says Mom you need to pull it together. (This is something I tell the kids all the time when they are falling apart)
Tyrene gave Kelli an award from the Red Cross (which Kelli proudly displays in her room) for saving Nicholas the day he fell into the pool.
