Amazing kids!

I have some awesome little girls and sometimes they blow me away so much I don't know how to express it. Yesterday Isabella made my heart melt like never before. She was doing her homeschool work and I was working on dinner for later that afternoon. She sat at the counter and offered occasional comments and asked about 894 questions. At some point she got quiet for a minute and then just said "Mommy, thank you". I stopped, seriously wondering what she was talking about and asked "for what?". She was slow to answer again and said something like "thank you for all that you do for me"... what a moment! (Considering that I was 28 years old with a newborn baby, and had put my mom through a whole lot more before I realized I needed to thank my mom for all that she had done.) To have my five year old offer such a grace filled moment for her mommy was incredible. I hope she always sees when nice things are done for her and remembers more hugs than pops on her bottom. I hope she also knows how incredibly special she is, but don't worry... we tell her all the time.

Leah - you always seem amazed at Isabella and Elissa but please realize they have two awesome parents! They have the best of you and Adam and any child would be blessed to have you as parents.
I thank God that he saved Adam for you!
