It seems I only post on here if I have something important to share.....so....I have something important to share!
I AM PREGNANT!!! :)
So, lately, I have been longing to say, " So and so has been my best friend for 20 years." I long to have a friend that is faithful and true...that doesn't lie to me, hurt me or use me. I long to have a friend that loves me and my family. One whom I enjoy spending time with when it is just us girls or when it is our families. I have found friends that our my friend for a time, but none that ever stick. As, I was thinking about this, I realized that I do have a best friend like that....Jesus. He is more to me than I could ever be to anyone. He is faithful and true and loves me in spite of myself. So, why, when I am so blessed, do I long for that earthly friend? Maybe if I take more time to be thankful for that ultimate best friend I do have, I will see better results on earth.
Twenty-two years ago today, my mom went home to be with the Lord. It is amazing how much I still miss her to this day. I wish she could have been there for some of the most important days in my life...graduation from high school and college, my wedding, the birth of my sons...etc. Most of all I just miss not being able to talk with her...to share the things that mothers share with daughters, to feel that unconditional love. Let's face it, sometimes you just need your mama! I hope that she would be proud of the woman I have become and whom God is shaping me to be. I hope she is smiling down at her beautiful grandsons. I look forward to the day that I can see her again. Today is just hard.
It has been a long time since I have posted. Today, I am dedicating this post to my firstborn. He turned 4 today. I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by. He is such a blessing in my life. I am so grateful that God has given me time on this earth with this precious little boy. So, Happy Birthday, Kaeden!
So, tonight Kaeden had to take a book to bed (like every other night!). After our prayer time he told me he couldn't find his book. (The book was right in front of him) I asked him if we needed to take him to the eye doctor to get his eyes fixed. His reply; "No, Mommy, I am not OLD like you!" So, apparently only old people go to the eye doctor! :)
