Man can you believe it, it’s only 11 days til Christmas and only a merely 17 more days til the New Year. They say time moves fast when you’re having fun, that is so not true. If that’s the case I should be having the time of my life at the rate time seems to be flying for me. Looking forward to the Blessings of the New Year. Each new day, new season, new year brings its own set of blessings. They may not be what we want but they are still great blessings none the less. My greatest blessing are my children. I am so grateful for all of them, they have taught me so much an I honestly can’t imagine my life without them. Craziest part is I never wanted to have a girl. Now I believe, if you have children a mother just isn’t a mother until she has a daughter. That’s just how I feel, she’s changed my life in so many ways. Wanting her to be the best young lady into woman she can be, has brought about a magnitude of changes for the better in me. I didn’t want to be a do as I say not as I do kind of mom. I want my actions to speak louder than my words so I try to live my life as if she’s always watching even when I know she’s not but then again I never know exactly when she is or isn’t. Don’t get me wrong I love and enjoy my boys but I expected to, I never expected for my daughter to bring me so much joy, peace and happiness into my life. My oldest I’m still waiting on him to be the young man I know he’s capable of being, but I don’t believe I have too much longer to wait. He’s 22 and he’s learning just because you turn 18 and become an adult doesn’t mean you get to rewrite all the rules. Some of them don’t change and must be followed no matter how old you are or who you are. We’re still a work in progress but we’re getting there, all of us. Happy Friday, enjoy!!
This takes on a whole new meaning tonight. When I posted this earlier this morning I had no idea of the horrific events that had unfolded in CT. I am so thankful my young one’s are safe tonight. I just wish the same could be said about all of our children. Far too many parents are burying their children, and this must be stopped.
