Where has the time gone? Here I sit in amazement at how quickly our children have grown.On Sunday I was listening to our older kids talk about how long they have been out of high school....Our oldest kids have been out for 6, 7 and 8 years. Yes, I had 3 back to back graduates! Yes, it broke us! We're still recouping. Man...why did I have to blink?
Tomorrow marks another milestone in our family. Number 5 is about to fly! Tomorrow night marks 5 Jackson County graduates from our family alone. Can I breathe yet? I have 4 more to go!
Jessica...you are one special girl woman. You make us so proud! I can't believe that little bundle we brought home on Christmas Eve is about to begin REAL life! Your passion for Jesus is why your smile is so beautiful. Your eyes light up everytime you flash those pearly whites. Every time you speak His name. God has brought you on this journey to accomplish His plan that He ordained since your very beginning. All your struggles and all your successes have brought you to where you are today. Now it's time to wipe the slate clean and begin a new journey. A new life. A new chapter. I love you more than I can say. Watching you grow to love your maker has been my greatest desire. Your willingness to be used by Him has made a difference in many lives. Hold on to Him....in the good times and in the bad. Keep your eyes on Him and He will bring you more peace and wisdom than you can ever imagine. Jessica your life matters! So hang on to that love and passion.... you are about to fly!
I met her the day she turned 18...We share a birthday, we shared a last name for a short while, we share a love for our Heavenly Father who loves us more than words can express! This woman has taught me so much about life and how to be the very best mom I can be! Her wisdom is where I run to when I have no answers. But the greatest gift she ever gave me... was to show me how to live for Christ! I am so proud to say ....This is my mom and I love her! I hope I can be just like her when I grow up!
