Today, our 'baby' will turn 5 years old!  In a family with eight children, that is BIG news!  :o)
Even bigger,.....her oldest sibling, will be coming home today from college to surprise her!  :o)  Only two of the other children know about it, so there will be A LOT of fun, screaming, laughter, and joy in our home tonight!  :o)

Doesn't that sound ideal?  Don't you wish every day could be so simple, fun, exhilirating? Maybe some of you do, maybe some of you don't.  For me,'s what I call, "a dream come true".  :o)

I love being a mother to so many children.  People ask me all of the time, "how do you do it"?  I want to assure you, I do it the same way you do.  I just show up every single day.  On the fun days, and the 'not so fun days'.  The catch for me is, I know that wherever I fall short, Jesus Christ loves my children even more than I do, so everything will be okay.  Do you have faith in Jesus Christ?

Let me assure you, if you're a mom, you've got faith in something or someone.  I know because you trusted someone at some point, or you wouldn't have children.  Even if you don't have faith in yourself, in your abilities,'ve got faith. 

I pray that your faith is in Jesus Christ, but even if it isn't, be assured, you are welcome here without judgement.  :o)

I hope you have a great day and just know,....I've got faith in you!  You can do this!  :o)  So, as my girlfriend would say to me, "put on your big girl panties" and get movin'!

Make the most of this day!  :o)

Until the next time,
