I have quite a few friends that have small children. As I am on the other end of the "child spectrum" I can relate to their woes, yet I am not experiencing them at this time in my life. As I was brushing my teeth this morning I realized there is something I am going to have to deal with soon, and I tell ya, I'm not ready for it.
Let me 'splain.
Hannah has had a house-sitting/dog-sitting job this week, and I have not seen much of her. As I said before, I was brushing my teeth this morning and I noticed three toothbrushes in the jar. I am not ready for three toothbrushes in the jar. I want four toothbrushes in the jar. Four. I am not ready for my girl to leave the nest. It makes me cry just to think of it. When I think that in a little over a year we will be houseful of three instead of four..... Oy.
Then I think (pray for) of Joey's mom and dad who have to deal with little ones AND children leaving the nest. Whoodog.
So we all have our hurdles we must jump, or climb over, or crawl to the top of, and we all need the giudance of our great God and the assistance of our wonderful friends.
Karli and Jen, someday you will be MY sanity fairies!
