My son has grown before my eyes and I almost missed it!

Tonight I saw just how much my son is not little anymore. His second grade program was a huge success, despite almost not making it out of the court because of the icy roads. I looked through the eye of the camera and saw a boy five years older than he is. I got a quick glimpse of what he will be like in junior high and my heart almost skipped a beat.

Time is going so very fast and I'm afraid I will miss it all. I am so caught up in life and not the little moments. Perhaps God was speaking to me through the eye of that camera - slow down and enjoy your precious boy. He has never really been mine - he is His, wholly and completely. I was given the gift of raising him on this earth for greater things and God is telling me not to miss a moment - it is the moments that count the most!

Here Goes Nothing

Well, here goes nothing! About a year ago I started reading my friend, Cindy's blog: Still His Girl (if you haven't read it yet, you should)! Absolutely the funniest thing ever! Anyway, I started thinking that I need to do this. It's only taken me a year to get started - it'll probably take another year to get this thing the way I want it.

God has blessed me so richly - a husband that loves me, two beautiful kids (if I do say so myself) and friends everywhere! I want to leave something behind someday, a little something that says who I was: God's daughter, the best wife I could have been, a Mom that loved her children endlessly, a decent housekeeper and a dear friend. I am His, no matter what, I try to be a good wife although I know there I times when I fail miserably, I do love my children but I always think I could be a better Mom and I won't begin to tell you what my house really looks like right now!

So, now that I have to get off here and take care of my husband, kids and house I am starting a new adventure! One that I hope will take me on a grand course of self-reflection, give my friends a few laughs and leave something behind for those I love (and perhaps a few others along the way).
