It Just Goes Too Fast!

I just finished rocking my baby to sleep, perhaps my most favorite thing to do in the whole world.  As she slept in my arms, I sat and gazed at her sweet 8-month-old baby face, trying to memorize every inch because I know that my memory will fade so soon. Every time I sit and […]

“Why do we have to die?”

Honestly, the three-year-old mind just produces the most amazing comments and questions. I was laying with Caroline last night as I often do when I put her to bed, (this is where we have some of the most interesting conversations) and this is the question she asked me: “Why do we have to die?” Whoa.

Finally Caroline yelled, “He’s gonna hurt my arm… that Jesus made!” Well, at least she’s got her theology straight.


Caroline has this adorable pink gingham tie-up shade on the window in her bedroom. Her window is right above her bed. You get where I am going with this. After I spent 30 minutes folding it just so and getting the bows to look exactly the way I wanted them, I explained to Caroline that […]
