I just had to drop in and tell ya'll that Rachel is having a WONDERFUL day today! She is courageously trying to go to school all day. Armed with prayer, the Lord, and His strength she is pressing on today. I'm so proud of her!
We had a fabulous afternoon yesterday. Yesterday morning, as you could probably tell from yesterday's post, my cry button was pushed. I couldn't help it. My eye twitching, shaky, puffy eyed, self was a sight to behold, I'm sure.
The Lord helped me pull myself together yesterday afternoon before I picked the girls up from school. Rachel was beaming when I picked her up. Her headaches had lessened a bit and she was thrilled to be back with her friends and a couple of cute guys winked at her...and well ...for an almost 16 year old girl, that makes everything a bit better, doesn't it? (shhhh, please don't share that last part with Mr. Incredible).
Anyway, Rachel felt like doing a little shopping after school. It was so fun and desperately needed! Her sister had to wear warm up pants to school and was in great need of jeans. The night before, we were having dinner when Hannah lept out of her chair and grabbed her pants.
With a look of horror, she bent over and said, "Momma, can you see this hole?" I said, "You mean the 3 inch gaping hole? ....Did you wear those jeans to school today????" Yes, she explained, because her other 2 pairs had holes in them too. What does she do to her jeans? "When did you get that hole?"
She quipped in a very southern drawl, "I DO NOT KNOW!" We both belly laughed until our sides hurt. Oh my goodness!!
I always run through my Mom checklist before my girls head out the door for school. I usually ask: Did you have your devotional? Did you brush your teeth? Did you make your bed? Take your medicine? Do you have your homework? I may need to add: Did you check your jeans...to the list. Oiy!
Yes, excuse us. I'm the shaking, eye twitching mother and this is my youngest daughter, Miss Holy pants! I'm so thankful that it is Friday! Have a blessed weekend!
