Jessica on our summer vacation
Jessica is my only daughter and becoming more of my friend every day. We are much alike, and I have learned much about myself by mothering her. She has very decided opinions (wonder where that comes from?) and we have many interesting conversations. We enjoy our tea parties and sipping hot drinks together at Panera Bread. We occasionally exercise together--although she usually drops out on me 10 minutes into it. We have graduated from kindergarten and first grade together. I am blessed to have such a sweet daughter and I thank the Lord for her!
Jeffery at his last birthday party
With the birth of my first son, I entered a world to which I'm still trying to get adjusted--mothering sons! He is everything I am not: enthralled by trucks and motorcycles, loves wild jumps off the tops of things, rough and ready to wrestle at a second's notice. Yet I love it, especially when he finally winds down and wraps his arms around me and gives me a bear hug. I thank the Lord for my little boy who is growing more like his daddy every day.
Jerrod is just "my baby". He still loves being toted around on my hip or sitting in Daddy's lap, and he has always been mostly happy. He takes his time sitting, crawling, standing and walking. I think the Lord blessed me with him so I can enjoy each stage and not rush through them like I did the other two. He already prefers Jeffery's cars (and accompanying "brrrrr" noises) to Jessica's dolls and has endeared himself to all of our hearts. I thank the Lord for my Little Man!
TODAY...thank the Lord for your children, even if they are grown, and tell them how much you love and appreciate them. If you don't have children, find some in your family or church and do something special for them.
THEN...leave me a comment and tell me why you have the most precious children in the whole world.
REMEMBER...God sees us as His children and gave His own Son for us.
