5 Years Goes by Fast

That is where I was exactly 5 years ago today. I had no clue what I was in for, but I was oh so glad to not be pregnant anymore.

My biggest boy has grown and changed a lot in those five years. He is smart, well-spoken, opinionated, stubborn and loving . . . more than just a little like his mommy.

We butt heads a lot and yet he is always eager to please. Sometimes he just wants his way a little bit more.

I can’t believe my firstborn isn’t really so little anymore. He’s ready to go to school. Really, probably ready to take on the world if we would just let him.

I pray God gets a hold of that stubborn little heart and turns it towards Him. I’m not the best mommy in the world, but I hope, in spite of me, God takes the heart of this little boy and doesn’t something powerful in it and through it.

When you think of it today, please whisper a prayer that Riley will seek God with everything in him. And that Mommy will be patient with the process.

Amen.
