Lessons of the day… thus far!

27 Jul

Here are a few things I learned today (and the day is still very young)

1. It is not good when Mom and Haley are both sick at the same time. She likes to cry a lot when she is not sick, but more so when she is and a few times this morning, I almost joined her.

2. The movie “The Help” is a just sad and kinda made me depressed. I can’t believe that our world was once like that. I hate the term “colored” in the way it was used in the movie… and will be happy if I never hear it referenced like that again!

3. Trying to start a blog for my ministry is harder than I thought, and I am not very patient.

4. I have an amazing husband. He came home early so that I could lay down and rest and now he is laying down with me. I think he just wanted to come home early, but using my “being sick” was a great excuse. Yep, he is a keeper.

5. It is amazing how much kids can grow, or appear to grow, when they are gone for 10 days. My big twins just got home from a vacation to Florida and I swear Ashlyn is as tall as I am now. It is very scary.

6. And so far the best thing I have learned today is that it does a mom’s heart good when teenagers come home from vacation and give you a huge hug, followed by them saying how much I was missed and that they can’t wait for their baby sisters to wake up from their afternoon nap. God is good!

I am sure that by the time the day is finished I will have learned plenty more, but so far… this has been my day!

    Well, isn’t that the truth about the kids growing. Take a look back and see how fast you and sis grew up. HUMMMM makes me alot older as well. YUCK. Hope you and Haley are doing better today and that your family will have a GREAT day just hanging out. LOVE IT. See you tomorrow. Kisses and Hugs, Momma
