Thank You, Little Sister

Once upon a time
There was a girl
Who spilled her milk
So that it dripped off the table
And exasperated her mother
Who'd had a rather trying week
The mother grabbed a towel
Reminding herself not to cry over spilled milk
But was annoyed anyway
Until the little girl explained the situation
Of her older sister
Who has needed so much these days
This morning she needed more milk
And little sister had been pouring all her milk into her sister's cup
Thus the spill

Thank you for reminding me, little sister
That too often giving gets messy
Sometimes it doesn't go quite as planned
In real life it isn't nearly so romantic
There are times when it will spill all over
And mingle with the toast crumbs
And drip down all over the freshly mopped floor
But sacrifice is always worth it
Especially when it comes to love so grand

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

~ Sally Clarkson

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
