Happy Mother's Day

Lord knows I am not the perfect mother. I have many regrets and sure wish I could have a couple of do-overs, but being a mom to these two girls has been the best 15 years of my life! It is really amazing to see the best of you and the man you love make a whole person. Time is flying by so very fast. I saw the mamas and new babies this morning at church and it made my heart hurt to think that those days are already over. These days are filled with science projects, drivers permits and lots of spend the night company. I've traded in rooms strewn with toys for rooms covered with clothes. No more Barney on TV, now it's Ipods and Facebook. Instead of goldfish crackers, we consume huge amounts of chips and salsa. No more peek-a-boo, but we can laugh ourselves to tears over practical jokes.

I hope they know that while I've made mistakes, I love them more than life itself. I am so proud of them, and all that is good in them comes only from the grace of God. He takes our weaknesses and shows Himself strong.
