Bittersweet

One night recently when putting the kids to bed, I was explaining to Noah what bittersweet means and how it relates to the fact that he isn't a baby anymore. I told him I that I loved watching him grow up and become a gentleman, but that it's sad that he doesn't need me like when he was a baby. I cannot make this stuff up! The kid looks at me and says, "I may not need you, but I'll always want you." May as well have ripped my heart right out of my chest! He could write the quote book for melting a momma's heart! He always knows just what to say!

TV Scawwy

Woke up at 530 this morning to the sound of snow on the tv quickly followed by the wail of a certain little girl. Joel got up to get her and the conversation was priceless!
J: What are you doing out of bed, Grace?
G: All done bed. Tv scawwy. Tackle daddy time?
J: No, it's not tackle daddy time. It's still dark out.

Resurrection Celebration!

I love Easter! Not the bunny! Not the eggs! Not the new clothes! The celebration of the most life changing event in history! I truly felt a sadness on Good Friday as I thought of my Savior being crucified, murdered. For me. Imagine the sadness of that day so many years ago. All the work the disciples had witnessed and this is what it has come to. You have to wonder what questions went through their minds. But wait! That's not the end of the story! Today, the joy of what came to be just 3 days later! The most important event that altars the course of my destiny! My Redeemer lives!!!!
