When I was old enough to be thinking that someday I might be a mother, I was certain that I would most definitely give birth to sons. (Deep down, I'm pretty sure I knew that the only way to avoid having a daughter who put me through the kind of hell I put my mom through would be to not have a daughter at all!) With every pregnancy I could just "feel it"...I was definitely having a boy! So, imagine my surprise when I heard the words "it's a girl"...THREE TIMES!! After three tries I was done. No boys for me.
Who knew that God indeed had a little guy in store for me and that he would be packaged in some beautiful olive skin with two huge brown eyes and a melt your heart smile?
That little guy graduated from The Grace Place tonight and I have to admit, I got a little misty eyed! He could not be more excited about going to Blue Haze with the girls. As we walked out of the sanctuary tonight, he told a complete stranger, "I'm gonna turn six next week!" (Total lie! He just turned 5 four months ago!!)
Here he is in all his cuteness (and don't let that precious face fool you, he's definitely not as sweet as he looks!)
