I was blog hopping this morning and was reading about links I love at We are that Family.
She sent me to How to Handle Little People: A Non Tutorial .
This post touched me and made me cry...no 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 way...like 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 ...as 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.
