Special Days: Sitting around watching movies, listening to music and you showing me your art drawings you make on the computer. Also swimming with you.
Where I hope to see you grow: Patience. you are so rushed for everything in life. i wish you would learn to slow down and appreciate what you have now instead of always looking ahead. its good to look for your future and to plan and dream. just don't get so far ahead that you fail to see the gifts and beauty that are in your life know.
1. Hospital visit- you had swimmers ear! Very painful, very nasty experience. Why than is it on my favorite things I did with you this month? Simple. I made me realize how much you still need me for the small things in life. It also showed me that you are still vulnerable, and that I can easily comfort you and help you with your fear and help you deal with the pain you are feeling by simply being there for you. Sometimes I see how quickly you are growing and how independent you are tyring to be and I forget that you still need me just as much as you did when you were a little girl. This trip was a good reminder to me that although you are growing up.
2. Bible Bee; That's right, bible bee. I entered you in the 2012 National Bible Bee contest. We have over 66 verses to memorize and we are doing a in depth study on 2 Timothy. You are made about it because its a lot of work, but I have faith in you and I know through the Lord you can accomplish all things! More on this to come.
3. Alone Time: We don't get this very often and even when you do its not for very long. I know you keep asking for more mommy/daughter time and I keep meaning to give it to you, but life keeps getting in the way. If we are lucky we can watch a whole movie uninterrupted or play a complete board game, but its very seldom and getting worse. This is something i promise you I will make more time for. Its important for me to spend quality time with you, bonding, learning about you and sharing life with you. I love hearing about your day. your hopes and dreams. The things that are bothering you and upsetting you too.
