June 8th marked Abigail’s 7th birthday! She’s already in a hurry to grow up and be 8. :) Slow down dear, I still can’t believe you’re 7! Abbie has taught us so much over the years. It’s funny, but as you teach and correct your children, the Lord often uses that time to show you your own shortcomings. As I teach Abbie to be patient, the Lord reminds me of times I was impatient. As I tell her to use words of kindness I’m reminded of my own words that I would rather forget. And I know God our Father did that on purpose! To mold us and make us better children of God! Parenting has been a wonderful learning experience and we’re so thankful for our little girl.
