Watching Our Kids Grow!

In today's mail I received information on my daughter #1's graduation from college. I read the information and cried. I am so thrilled for her. She worked hard in high school and was accepted to the "selective" college of her choice. She is finishing in four years and has done everything just the way she was supposed too. Now she will graduate, hopefully find a job, get an apartment, make new friends and just enjoy all the things this next chapter will bring her. How the time has flown by. It seems like just yesterday we were picking out the right elementary school for her. Motherhood is such a blessing and certainly not a job to take lightly. I remember meeting a very old woman when my oldest was just a baby in my arms and she gave me some advise - "cultivate your children carefully, so that you can be proud of your harvest". I did and I am! Raising both of my girls has been a pleasure and a joy. Even the days I was pulling my hair out raising them, I would do it all again and again and again!

I really appreciate this quote:
"When you have brought up kids, there are memories you store directly in your tear ducts."  ~Robert Brault,
