I Have Been Blessed

All about how God has blessed me. In my marriage, with my six children, through homeschooling, and our faith with recipes, large family living, and updates on our life.

Every so often

on November 5, 2010

I guess what triggered it today, was Austin telling me that Madelynne is going to be tall. Taller than me. Maybe as tall as Aunt Betsy. Which made me pull out my Baby Book to see how tall I was at three, but my Mom didn’t write down heights after 8 months, only occasional weights. Which reminded me that it was time to update the Baby Books again. I try to be a good mother about this and all five of them have a book and as of today are caught back up with recent weights, new things they’ve accomplished, etc.

Also, every so often (about once every six months) I write the kids a letter. Every single one of them. Adreya and Wyatt have letters from before they were born. Today I took all five book, and all the letters and read them. Got to remember what Brendyn was like at 5, What Tyler was like at 3, What Madelynne did at 2, Adreya at 8 months, Wyatt six months ago. I wanted to cry.

How is it that these children grow so fast? In those letters are things they’ve done. The kind of person they were. What things they were “in” to. My prayers for them. I’m not the best at making sure I take their pictures all the time (I have no pictures of Tyler or Adreya’s Birthday). I’m not so good at writing down all the funny things they said, but I know that they will have my words in their baby books to remember who they were and know how much I loved them.

Five Special Blessings to Me today (is this too obvious): Brendyn, Tyler, Madelynne, Adreya, and Wyatt.

Have a Blessed Day!
