Its hard to believe how quickly 26 years can go by. I read the blogs of the sweet young Moms that I know and I think "that was me just a little while ago". So much has changed in 26 years. Who would have thought in those days that we would be able to have laptop computers and write about our days and encourage each other and share ideas and pictures and thoughts like we do these days as we blog. Back then, microwaves had just been around a few years, cell phones were rare and more like giant walkie talkies. VCR's were only recently out on the market, and we certainly thought they were a luxury we couldn't afford. You could still watch "The Brady Bunch" re-runs on T.V. and we didn't dream there was anything like "Cable Television" I already had two precious little boy's ages "almost 4" and "almost 2" and I was given another great miracle in my life which was the birth of twin girls. Many things come and go in this life, but these gifts of God (my children) are truly better than them all. I really get choked up just remembering the delightful days I had raising my children. We were a happy family. Things do change children grow up and move away, but the delight that they have given to my life cannot compare to anything except the Love of God. Marie and Elizabeth have been my delight all the years that I have had them; my best friends, my best news, the sweetest comfort, the greatest encouragement, the happiest moments, a preview of heaven for me. I know their Daddy feels the same way. We are very blessed with treasured memories of all the days that they were with us, and are so thankful for the days yet to come. Thank you Lord for them.
Happy Birthday Marie and Elizabeth. Dad and I love you and miss you and treasure you so much.
