My How Things Change...


My friend Raquel sent me this blast from the past photo; I was pregnant with Wyatt, still a mommy of only one, (still wearing false eyelashes regularly! Ha!) and my how I have changed...not so much physically, although I do think my skin and hair have aged decades the last five years, but that's another post...


I am a calmer mom. I am a more obedient wife. I am a more trusting child of God. I am a less defensive person. I am a better housekeeper and more disciplined disciple. I am a better friend. I am more wise with money. I am more thankful. I am more sensitive. I cry more easily. I hug longer. I am more tolerant of bad smells. I am less likely to worry about the house being a mess when someone pops by, and more likely to offer them a drink and a smile. I am better about recycling. I am less judgmental...all because we have three (soon to be four) kids under the age of five.


Thanks Raquel for making me take inventory of the past few years and how they have chiseled away at the bad and enhanced the good parts of me.

You forgot to add how gracious you are. I don't think I have met anyone in a very long time that is as gracious as you and Scott. rs

Hmmm, now you've got me thinking about how much I've changed since the pic Raquel sent me. I'll have to ponder...

I love how you are real!

Great post--I know I'm really late to get here and comment but I feel the same way. Though I love that cute picture of you!

I hope I am changing for the better as I get older too. I look at my mom and how laid back she is now versus how she was when I was little and I think maturity and time does that to you!

Thanks for your kind comments on my blog! Mitchell is coming home tomorrow!
