First Day School
This is what I felt like this morning. Trying to juggle everyone's schedule and making lunches and watching my household go out the door.
As I waved good-bye to my 4th bird to leave the nest, I thanked God that He moved upon me to keep having babies. I then thought about how life is made up of "Firsts" First baby, first tooth, first time your 16 year old takes the car out of the driveway.
The one first, I am the most happy about that I have taught the kids most of their lives so that the first day of school somewhere other than upstairs they are 18 years old and I think better equipped to handle the pressure of the world. I have often thought, I am unable at 51 to withstand peer pressure, why do we ever think our children will when we send them to school at five.
Yes, I am thankful to this life God has given me.
