Birthday's have never really been a big deal to me, well at least mine. My kids are a different story. For me it's just another year older to me.
When I think back on what has happened the last year it's crazy. Reagan turned 1, I stopped working about a year ago, Eric got a new job that he is doing stuff that he loves to do, we bought our first new car and Ava turned into a crazy 4 year old. This year has gone by fast, maybe a little too fast.
I wish I could make time pass by slower. Make my girls grow up a little slower so I can enjoy their little faces before they turn into teenagers and suddenly giving me hugs and telling me they love me isn't "cool" anymore. Make the weekends go by slower so I can spend more time with my husband, there never seems to be enough time. Make nights go by slower so I could get more sleep, cause well don't we all ha ha.
This year, I am going to try to get frustrated less often, enjoy the day a little more, kiss my babies every moment that I can and be thankful for what I have.
I wanna Thank you Lord,
For noisy children and slamming doors,
And clothes scattered all over the floor,
My husband workin' all the time,
My never ending messy kitchen
And dirty dishes.
Noisy kids are happy kids,
And slamming doors just means we live,
In a warm and loving home.
Your long hours and those dishes in the sink,
Means a job and a enough to eat.
