MINE

Sometimes I look at my family and my breath literally catches.

I can’t believe that in a manner of speaking,  they belong to me.

I birthed those children.  I married that man.

I really am blessed beyond measure or lucky beyond belief.

P.S.  I’m giving away a bunch of scrap booking stuff this week!

PremadeHandmade card kit and die set $50

    I know EXACTLY what you mean. Sometimes I look at David playing with the kids are them sitting with him watching TV and I just have to stop and watch. They are all of me all bottled up together and I praise the Lord for them every day.

    That photo is precious, Angie. And I feel the same way about my husband and kids. Just tonight, I sat in bed with my daugther (who is now almost eleven) and we talked for about an hour… just about stuff. After I got back downstairs, I thought to myself, “I wonder how many more years of that I’ll get to do.” I hope many.

    Loved this post.

    Hugs,

    That’s a beautiful shot! The caption of “MINE” summs up every mother in the known universe I think, lol so good choice. (Also reminded me of the BDB – if you’ve read those books, fiercly protective & willing to kill anyone who so much as LOOKS funny at their “MINE”)
