some cliche’s are true…

Today my youngest children turn 18.  In a week they graduate from high school.  In a month, they register for college.  It’s a whole new ballgame.  Even though I experienced this season last year, it’s a whole new ballgame because they are my youngest.  They are my girls.  My DH (dear husband) and I are so proud of them.  They are sweet and kind and full of joy and LOVE big.  It’s been an honor and privilege to be their Mom and to be able to pour into their lives daily.  In a few more months, they will be standing on their own two feet and making their way at Union University.  Grateful, honored, proud, thankful, blessed… all these things I am.  But above any of those things.. I am in awe of how they love Jesus and how they are following hard after Him.  Has nothing to do with DH or I, but everything to do with how BIG our God is.  He gets all the glory.  DH and I just tried really hard every day.. and He did it in spite of ourselves.

SO… grab a tissue and rejoice with me…

Iggy & Sissy.. Dad & I love you to the moon, beyond and back. We are so incredibly proud of the women you are becoming and so excited about your futures. We are celebrating with you, praying for you and cheering you on. Our hearts are full and time went by way too quickly…
