Just humor me for a sec

I just had one of those mornings where I just had a real big slap in the face kind of moment when it comes to blessings. So....I started looking around some old pictures and just wanted to cry. A good kind of cry though. I have had so much fun in the last year and I just thought I'd share some of my memories.

Thank you Lord for all the blessings in my life. I know they are from you and I'm thankful for that slap in the face kind of reminder this morning. It was a good slap. ;)

I just need you to know this is my youngest when he was 1. Look at the hair people! It did this all the time and was by far the cutest thing I'd ever seen. EVER. He's 8 now. *Sigh*

Take some time to reflect on all your blessings.
Hugs and blessings~

I need to know where this Naked Iguana is. I want to go there! I remember babysitting for Dylan back when his hair still did that--he wasn't that little--maybe 3yrs? And Tyler and Clay still wore one-piece matching pj's! Love it!

Patty said...

What a wonderful post!! I loved looking at all your pics, well, except the ones where my fat face is in them. ;) hehehehehehe

Your son is a doll, even with fly away hair. ;)

Much Love,

That photo of your boy brought back memories. My daughter's did that too! I said at the time that she was going to have good Jennifer Aniston hair, and she does have really great hair...unlike mine. ;)

Love the picture of your little one and the hair is to die for...I just thought to do that with my boys pictures that are on the wall...they were just the most adorable babies (like all moms don't think that)..I thought I need to take a photograph and then put it on the bloggy...

We are on the same page girlfriend... Kim

Lisa @ The Preacher's Wife said...

Girl, you are as much a part of our blessings as we are of yours.

And don't think I wasn't going to be ticked if my picture wasn't in this post..LOL

Oh how we need to count our blessings! My oldest child always looked like he had static electricity when he was that small. How cute they are!!!(Mine boy is much bigger than me now and lives out on his own. {sniff, sniff} They grow so fast.)
