May 22, 2008

These are just some random photos I took of the girls while they were outside playing on May 22. Can you tell that Bailey has become quite a ham? She loves to pose for pictures. Brinley loves playing out at the tree house and driving her Jeep.

Not posting lately

I haven't been blogging much lately. I've just been hanging out and spending time with the girls and working. The Monogrammed LadyBug is bringing in some great business along with my eBay store and I've just recently opened my etsy shop. Here are some photos of what we've been up to. School is finished this week and we have some fun times planned for the summer.

Don't Sweat The Small Stuff

I borrowed this from one of my favorite blogs to follow. Lena & Macey are just too cute. Donna, I hope you don't mind that I borrowed this. :)

Just for this morning, I am going to step over the laundry, and pick you up and take you to the park to play.

Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with you in the backyard and blow bubbles.

Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck and I will buy you one if he comes by.

Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about what you are going to be when you grow up, or second guess every decision I have made where you are concerned.

Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you trying to fix them.

Just for this afternoon, I will take us to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can have both toys.

Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story about how you came to be my daughter and how much I love you.

Just for this evening, I will let you splash in the tub and not get angry.

Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.

Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my favorite TV shows.

Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you pray, I will simply be grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever given.

I will think about the mothers and fathers who are searching for their missing children, the mothers and fathers who are visiting their children's graves instead of their bedrooms, and mothers and fathers who are in hospital rooms watching their children suffer senselessly, and screaming inside that they can't handle it anymore.
And when I kiss you good night I will hold you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then, that I will thank God for you, and ask Him for nothing, except one more day.............
