It creeps up and we dont even realize it.  It's hard to find someone who doesnt feel pride about something, their job, their home, their kids, their behavior, their name it its there.  It may be deep down and often silent but its there.   I am so guilty of this.
pride  (prd)
1. A sense of one's own proper dignity or value; self-respect.
2. Pleasure or satisfaction taken in an achievement, possession, or association: parental pride.

PLEASE notice the italics parental pride....WOW.
Yep I feel it often, too often to admit. Today this was posted as the IDSC's campaign photo.  It was on facebook, over 40,000 people are watching the IDSC page, it was on the IDSC website...and Clay and I felt proud.
The glory for this gift is all God's but I am proud He has allowed us to steward such an enormous blessing.   No other word...just proud.  I am proud that this message is being spread and I am proud that Murphy is reaching so many people...and that we are able to help more and more families.   God is so good.

Oh and did anyone happen to see this...

Big stuff for a little fellow!!!

We are so proud of our children, and so humbled that we are so blessed with them. It was a big week for the Murph, and he doesn't even realize it.
