Turning 10

One of the truest things I have ever heard uttered about parenting went something like this, "children, they grow up much faster than us, the parents do." I have found this to be altogether true. By the time I thought I had/have something figured out, this oldest of mine...she went ahead and turned 10. That's halfway to twenty for those of you not so good at math and less than halfway to 18. This mother heart of mine wants to turn back time, to do all those things I know to do better now over, and to laugh a whole lot more with this super giggly girly~girl. I guess I will have to trust in the One who gave her to me as a gift and helped me see Him as I mothered her. And that there are no do~overs or mulligans in life for a reason.

And oh, what a day it was. Full, and overflowing with celebration to share with you all....
