I was blog hopping this morning and was reading about links I love at We are that Family.

This post touched me and made me I bawled as my memaw use to say. (I always hated the word bawl)
I'm still sniffing as I type. 
I wonder how many times I let the little things get in the spilled paint, and didn't take time to comfort my girls as I rushed to clean it up. I am so lucky to have 2 beautiful girls who are taking care of themselves, are productive citizens and love God.
I know in this day and age their are a lot of parents out their that can't say this and I'm not bragging. I'm just sayin.
I know that God was there even when I was not acknowledging Him...helping me take care of them and molding them to be the young ladies they are today. 

Were not perfect, we say things we regret, If I could go back and do it different.... I would spend more time with them, less time at work,not raise my voice much, and hug them...hug them...and hug them some more.
(although we do a lot of hugging in my family anyway, you can never hug enough.)

*Thank you to Kristen who introduced me to Ann's Holy Experience blog who made me cry and thank God for my kids.

It's hard to remember in "the heat of the moment". I try so hard, sometimes I do better than others.

That is a very sweet post! And a very good reminder. My kids are all still young and every day I strive to be the best mom I can be but somehow it all goes to heck in a hand basket by 12:00 noon!

Thanks for stopping by my blog via Shell's blog!
