This will be short because I have been gone from home since Sunday morning, driven home from St Louis today, gone to lunch with a friend, gone to the doctor, donated blood and well….that’s a lot for a gal like me.
But I had to share a moment.
This is our Sarah, sitting beside one of her students who is playing in her first public appearance. Note the *proud father filming off to the side.
And imagine, the *proud mama that was picturing a little girl in a plaid skirt, white blouse and big old hair bow playing Mississippi Hot Dog on her violin on the steps of the grade school stage here in Soy City….all the way through to a beautiful young woman in a formal dress performing her senior recital before her college graduation …and all the concerts and ages and stages in between…..filming the whole scene from a folding chair in a gym in St Louis.
Joy multiplied. Joy upon Joy….
*there are those who have corrected me when I use “proud” with parenting….there is a pride that exalts itself above God, but we are limited in the English language and this is no pride goeth before the fall kind of proud….this is heart in your throat, how in the heck did God trust us with His creation, wondering how we made it through, humble praise of God for the privilege and gift of being someone’s mom <3
