Just had to get this post in before I post about Christmas and New Years! Behind on blogging, but making progress at my house. I've been going through some rooms and decluttering and today I caught up a little bit on my scrapbooking. (Trying to finish up my 2008 album. And no, I'm not caught up until that year either. LOL. I have half finished years. I'm thankful for the blog as it really helps with my journalling!)
Earlier today Joshua asked me if I'd put anything new up on my blog. I told him no. He was surprised. Nothing about Christmas? Or visiting the Kenkels? Or New Year's Eve? No. I'm going to remedy that though.
Just a couple of weeks ago, our little princess had a birthday. She is 5 years old! I really can't believe she is 5! I told a friend that for me one of the blessings of having a child with Down syndrome is that they seem to age a little slower. Its a little more gentle on my mama's heart.
Thank you sweet Eliana for teaching us so much. ...
to slow down.
to give more hugs.
to smile at strangers.
to dance more often.
to appreciate small milestones (especially when they can seem so big).
to recognize beauty in all that God has made.
to be thankful for good health.
And so much more. We are blessed. God has blessed our family abundantly with six wonderful children. I am a very thankful Mama.
I love you Eliana!
