Not worthy, but so grateful.

I have to blog about this because I don't ever want to forget it. And I don't want anyone to think I am bragging because I am humbled to the core (right now, anyway) and so amazed at God's mercy and love. Keep in mind my daughter has one of the sweetest hearts on earth as well.

Laney: Mama, you're the best mom on earth!

Me: You mean for you, right? I know there are better moms out there than me!

Laney: No, I mean you are the best mom on earth.

Me: Baby, I am not even nice!

Laney: Mom, I don't know how to say it. (thoughtful pause) It's not who you are as a mom, it's like who you are as a person, even though you are crabby a lot!

I never thought my kids would esteem me so highly. Not ever. I am so grateful. And I know the teen-age years are coming, so I am treasuring this moment.

Like. See, if blogging were more like facebook, I would be clicking the "Like" button right now. :-)

But, on facebook there is no "Thanks for Liking" button. :)

That is sooo cool! A real reflection of a woman putting God first and the other things in her life falling into place:0) Those are sweet words to remember from the sweet heart of Laney.

You're right Julene, seeking Him has been my only hope, especially in the Mom department. And He has been so faithful! Thank you for your sweet words.
