Letting go….

Life is funny sometimes. When your children a little you pray they will become a little more independent and when they are  getting older you pray the would be a little more depend or love you a little more.

I love to hug my babies and when they were little we would say fill up my hug tank- when they would hug they would say  glug,glug,glug….. corny, but I loved it. The kids don’t like filling it up as much now and my tank is filled with a quick peck on the cheek and an occasional eye roll. Today I will take what I can get.

Have a great day, Candy

Five Valuable Lessons I have learned raising teenagers!

  1. I forgot is a common excuse, but memories are like an elephant when their brother didn’t do something.
  2. I just found out why we have so many glasses being used everyday. “It is gross to use the glass more then once!”
  3. It doesn’t matter what you did for them in the past, it is what you are doing for them now.
  4. It’s OK to leave the windows open and the air conditioner on! Last month Randy and I arrived home after work and all the windows were open except the living room and the air conditioner was on. I asked why is the air on and the windows open? When my teenager explained, I closed the living room and I was going to get to it on the commercial, but forgot. When I was a kid and the door left open in the winter : what are you heating the outside?
  5. “Don’t compare me to my sister, we are different” Until she reminds us of perceived privileges or advantages her sister has had she hasn’t ….then it all about being the same and fair!

I think the Lord planned it right, we have infants that grow into teenagers and we can grow right along with them! Have a great day and God’s Blessings, Candy
