Birthday Boy!!

My sweet "big boy" turned 8 last Wed.
We both had the flu : ( !!!!!! He handled it pretty well. We both layed around all day and when Daddy got home he opened his gifts had a little of his birthday dinner and cake. We didn't get to have a big birthday day but he handled it in stride. He was soo grateful for his gifts and it meant so much to us that he is learning to have a heart of thankfulness in all circumstances (well beyond his mother in that realm).

Isaac is such a great boy. It just hit me a couple of months ago that we are very close to the "1/2 way mark" with him and my heart wanted to stop. I'm not ready for that!!! I don't feel I've done a good job at showing him Jesus. He often times does a better job of that than me.

I also realized that he will remember these days and how I am with him. I sooo don't want him to remember a grouchy, frustrated mom that never smiled, always barked orders and generally seemed unhappy about life. He has such a loving heart and usually tries to make things better when I'm on a rampage. It should be the other way around. Oh dear Lord, may I do a better job of reflecting you and living in the Spirit for his next 10 (at least) than I've done at his first 8. May my children remember you from their childhood and not my mistakes. They deserve it and so do you.
