It seems like just yesterday we were blessed with the little 8 lb. 11 oz. baby girl we call Alex. I blinked my eyes and she somehow has reached her senior year of high school and is on the verge of turning 18. Where did time go? How did I waste so many days? I wish like anything I could turn back time and read just one more book to her, tuck her in bed and hear those sweet good-night prayers. I wish I had said "yes" to every game of Disney "Scene-It". How could this time get here so fast?
I feel this quote sums up my mothering -
"This parenting gig's an experiment in radical grace and the work of every parent is to fully give to the child.
And it's the work of every child to fully forgive the parents." - Ann Voskamp
