Oh. My. Goodness... I know everyone says this but how did this happen? I attended a meeting today to plan the fifth grade party for my eldest son. Wasn't he just like this yesterday??
And now, in roughly 90 days, he'll be in middle school...
God is so merciful to us. John was saved at the age of 9 and continues to amaze me every day. He's smart, funny, kind, and most of all, loving. He looks out for me and always opens my car door for me. He hollers, "you ok?" from another room when he hears something that could have been me getting hurt or dropping something. He's the one who made me a mom. What an amazing job I have to be his mom and get the privilege of raising this young man. He's Chuck's mini-me... their fifth grade pictures are almost interchangeable. Freaky!
Enjoy the good days and try to ignore the bad ones. I've been feeling very down lately and lots of feelings of inadequacy and failure and uselessness. Cognitively, I know that is not true but alas, I'm a woman and we are prone to irrational feelings at times. The fact they are irrational doesn't make them go away.
Keep it Simple,
