Aren't they just the cutest? Well, this mom thinks so anyway. I am so very proud of them.
Kayla is an 8Th grader this year. WOW!!! Where has the time gone. She has her teenage attitude moments every once in a while, but overall I am one blessed mom. She has helped "nurse" her mom back to health, when daddy couldn't, handled the first week of 8Th grade like a pro and even helped her brother with a few homework questions last night.
At the Anniversary bash, a few weeks ago, I received compliment after compliment on how "grownup" and sweet she was. She went around on her own accord, "thanking" my servers for helping, greeting her grandparent's guests with smiles and carrying a tray, in which she cleaned up, with no command from me. Does this mommy's heart good.
Jordan entered 6Th grade this year, all nerves. However, after the first day he realized it was like any other day of school and has settled in well. Now his days are full of homework, playing football at recess, with the guys and shadowing his dad after school. He is a good kid.
He is the one that underneath it all has seemed the most worried about his mommy. When I came home from the hospital, he asked me question upon question on what "they did to me." I don't think he rolled his eyes at me for at least four days, when I asked for help, and I received plenty of hugs from him the past week too. He is growing up to be a strong guy, but underneath it all is a little boy who loves his mommy. :)
Anyway, I have spent so much time talking about "me" lately. Which, by the way, I am still on the mend and doing well. Hurting only when I sit a certain way, bend over or get up too fast. Thanks for the prayers... SO, I just wanted to take a few moments today to talk about my two of my favorite people.
"Lord, continue to bless both my babies as they strive to do their best this school year. May they both be the best student, friend and child of God that they can be. May they continue to always stand up for what is right. May their dad and I always be supportive in all they do, showing them love, guidance and grace that can only come from the Lord. Thank you for these two precious blessings in my life... Amen."
Hope you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend!
