Moments that Matter

You know, things in life start looking a little different when a holiday rolls around.   I wish that wasn’t the case, but it is true it happens to everyone. 

With Father’s Day around the corner, I would like to praise the Lord for my husband. I'm so blessed to be married to him and pray for his continual leadership of our family.  He is trying so hard, and doing a wonderful job at it. 

I know that he gets to be the fun one most of the time;  he gets to eat popsicles with Gracie, and wrestle with her, and dance out in the middle of the garage like no one is watching.  But he also has to be the stern one sometimes too, but is very quickly forgiven.   Kids forgive so quickly.  He is making memories with Gracie that will never be forgotten.

Not that I couldn’t do all of that stuff too, but I am usually in the  house cleaning up after dinner, or do laundry. 

So, Brian Lynn, thank you for just being you!  You make me laugh every day! Olive Juice!

You know there are some things in life that you just have to turn over to God.  Let God handle it.  If I didn’t do this with certain things, I would be lost.  I know he has the answers for me, and sometimes I am not listening.  Sometimes I am doing other things and not paying attention.  When I just sit and open my heart and ears I hear it…It makes it all better!  What a difference one single thing can make! 

Here is my favorite part of this song!

I know that you are holding all the answers
I'm tired of losing hope and taking chances,
On roads that never seem,
To be the ones that bring me home
Give me a revelation,
Show me what to do
Cause I've been trying to find my way,
I haven't got a clue
Tell me should I stay here,
Or do I need to move
Give me a revelation
I've got nothing without You
I've got nothing without You

It is all about giving it to him, he has the answers, just listen…I just hope that I wasn’t listening to the wrong thing :)

What about when I get older?

Gracie is 4 years old, and she is always asking for things for the future.  Like she wants an iPad when she turns 7, and a cell phone when she is 5.  What makes her think we are buying her an iPad, before we buy ourselves one?  So, I started thinking, what do I want when I get older…
  • To go to the restroom by myself, with no little fingers or dog paws under the door.
  • I want to be able to take Gracie to Disney World, and let her get dressed up by the princesses
  • I want to be able to hold a conversation with my child without her whining, “but MOM!”
  • I want Gracie to be able to trust me enough and not hold anything back, I want her to tell me everything, even though I may not want to hear it, I still will listen!
  • I want her to never be afraid to tell the truth, no matter what, I don’t want her lying.  That is a personality trait that I can’t stand!
  • I want her to understand that even though I sent her to daycare every day, I loved and missed her dearly.  But Mama has to work baby!
  • I don’t want her to remember the times that I was too tired to play, or that I used the TV as a babysitter, I want her to remember every time I got in that floor and colored with her, or played Barbie's with her.
  • I want her to know the countryside, I want to be able to take her on trips all over the place!
  • I don’t ever want her to be too spoiled to wear Wal-mart clothes, I want her to embrace it and wear it with pride, and never make fun of someone that is wearing it.
  • I want her to be friends with everyone, be nice to everyone, no matter the color of their skin, their looks, or a disability…be nice to everyone
  • I want her to know the Lord, and pray to him when she fears something, he will guide her through it
  • Most of all, I want her to know that her Dad and I love her very much and that we would do anything in the world for her…except bail her out of jail (the first night anyway) LOL!
