As moms we're sort of proud when our children receive awards.
Well, yesterday was Shining Stars Day at our school, Midway Elementary. I never imagined both of my girls would get the same award!
Now, this little girl tells me she is a good girl at school.....hmmmmm...she is loved by all of her classmates.......hmmmmmm
It am still amazed at how that same spunky girl who loves to challenge her parents is the same sweet little girl who give the best hugs and kisses. She will tell a stranger she has pretty hair, or tell her mommy she is the best mommy in the world.
And, while both sad and sweet...here is a sweet moment for Ellie. She decided to get out of the bath tub when I wasn't in the bathroom. While that may not be an area of concern for some, having Ellie who falls regularly, walk across the bathroom floor with wet feet, IS reason for concern.
So, she fell.
And, she hit her head.
But, her sister ran, sort of, to get me. (She is still recovering from a broken arm, so she didn't want to hurry up the stairs too fast.)
When, I arrived in the bathroom, Ellie was sprawled out on the floor. I'm sorry, but I had to chuckle. She was wrapped in one towel, and her head was placed on another. Josie-Tatum had nursed her a moment before finding Mama. When she saw me, Ellie stopped cyring to say, "Josie's a nice sister."
How's that? Josie-Tatum will take care of her sister, and I pray she always will. And, Ellie will speak kind words about her for her efforts, and I pray she always will.
And, I have to tell you, tonight at prayer time Josie-Tatum tells Jesus, "Jesus, I wish it didn't cost so much to adopt, so maybe Daddy would let us adopt 100 kids."
