Growing Up

I may have shed a few tears just now. 

Because when did this little girl?

Hannah Fall 2008

Become this little girl?

And when did this little girl?
Leah, summer 2007

Turn into this little girl?

Time, could you please slow down just a little? Because I swear, I just blinked and these beautiful daughters of mine went from toddlers to young girls.

Oh Lord, let me mother them with wisdom. Let me teach them respect, kindness, generosity, and strength. Help me to be a good example-- not of perfection, but of love in action. What incredibly precious gifts they are.

"Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built."
--Dr. James Dobson
