"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

Today as I realize that these children (that the Lord chose to place in my husband's and my care) are grown up, I'm choosing denial.  My oldest is 24.  My 21 year old is married.  My '16 in May' is a young woman.  But my 'baby'?  Well, my baby is my baby.  Sorry sweetie you don't get to grow up.  It's your place.  Do as you're told!

Blessings,  Debbie

  2. Isn't it hard? I addresses this in my "Let's Go Fly a Kite" post...where were the books that told us how to do this? I have four out of the nest, a 15 and 5 year old still here and no the 5 year old can never grow up!
