On Vacation

I decided to take a vacation today. It isn't that I don't have anything to say, but I have two kids that just became bloggers.

If you want to find out about my son, Daniel, and drop a comment reminding him to keep his apartment clean and write to his Mommy, click here.

If you want to see the most adorable grandchildren in the world and see that my firstborn experimental child turned out OK despite me, click here.

I love my kids. They were worth giving up my career, my life, my sleep, my figure, my brain cells and my sanity. It is still weird to me that after all the work you do as a Mom, they just move away and live their own lives. I know that was the plan all along, but when it actually happens, the reality that they are not coming home seems to be something that you never can fully prepare for.

But, we are so thankful that our children are seeking after the Lord.

This has been my favorite mothering verse through the decades.

Psalm 113:9
He makes the barren woman to keep house,
and to be a joyful mother of children.
Praise ye the LORD.

I may not have always been outwardly happy, yes, at times, my kids drove me crazy, but I have always had my joy in the Lord. I have much to praise Him for.

But, I was just wondering, since they are all starting to move out, does this mean I get my career, my life, my sleep, my figure, my brain cells and my sanity back?

Cuz, I was just wondering.

I'd settle for even one out of six...
