Before church, this past Sunday, all my girls were looking so beautiful so I asked if I could take their picture. My sweet Mayah said, "Mommy, will you be in the picture with us?" How could I say no to my sweet girl? So, we sat and David took some pictures of his girls. When I look at this it comes to my mind that some day VERY soon there will be one more precious daughter in this picture. Will she have the same nose? The same beautiful face structure? Will she be petite like Mayah or built more like Chiara and Leah? I wonder if I will finally get my brunette daughter. No matter what...I KNOW she will be surrounded by the love of her three sisters and her parents. In fact, she may be a bit smothered in love for a while!!! I love being a mom. I love that I have been entrusted with four girls. I would not change a thing. Ok, that's not entirely true....I would remove from people's mouths the stupid things they say like, "Oh, just wait until they are teenagers." or to David, " You are in trouble." First of all, I was a teenage girl. I was not a perfect angel either. In fact, I say good luck if my girls even think of lying or sneaking....never mess with the (former) master. Secondly, why would we waste this precious time thinking about what is to come? We are enjoying this season, not worrying with what is to come. Of course we believe how and what we are teaching them now will be the foundation for later, but later is not our focus. If all we focus on is "later" than we would certainly lose out on now.
Ok, so this sweet Sunday picture stirred lots more than just the beauty of my girls....it happens to an expectant mother. Four girls.....wow. Can't wait!
