It's hard to believe.


It's hard to believe that I'm old enough to have born six children.



It's hard to believe that we're old enough to have a mortgage, which we're working hard to get rid of.



It's hard to believe that I'm old enough to drive a Suburban, because I need to, not just because I think it's cool.



It's hard to believe that I've been married for ten years, and it's good. Really good.



It's hard to believe that I've grown up.



But what's hardest to believe is that despite all of my efforts, God has brought me here. I'm in love with Him, in love with my husband and in love with my family. They love each other and they love me too!

Your children are so beautiful. Just like their mother. Inside and out.

Hi Sarena - I know exactly what you mean. I have 6 kids, going on 7 and some days I don't even feel like a grown-up! I saw you are due 12/16; I'm due 12/24.

I saw your post over at The Complete Guide to Imperfect Homemaking and wanted to invite you to join in a weekly pregnancy journal I host on my blog. Check it out here if you are interested.
