I have had so much fun building this blog. It has forced me to sift through hundreds of pictures of my most beloved family. Sarah is so gifted with a camera, I could fill this entire blog with nothing but beautiful pics if I wanted to. BUT, I like unwrapping all the thoughts that fill my mind WAY too much to give this up.
I’m spending a lot of time with the girls helping them understand what it means to be a family and what it means to be sisters. Sadly, it is often those people who love us the most (and who we “deep down” love the most too) who we so often take for granted.
I seem to notice that most all little kids have a “selfish gene” that dominates their interactions with others. “That’s mine”…and “She took my”…are heard loudly in my house many times each day. This seems pretty normal. Even in my own life, I have to fight the tendency to be selfish all the time. And it is really hard to do! It is possible though to put others before yourself. People like my mom and Grandma Betty give me hope that it is inside me to love selflessly… and that I can teach my girls to love that way too.
Well, to all you reading this, I want to apologize for any times that I’ve taken you for granted or not loved you well. I want to thank you too for all the love and blessings that you are constantly showering on me and my family. Love ya! -B-
