My mom always said...

that one day, she hoped I had a child just like me...

and I did.

She is stubborn, but I pray for the stubborness to be a blessing in her life. May she use it to stand firm in what she believes.

She is serious, but I pray that in her seriousness, she is becoming astute and intuitive to the world around her.

She is smart, but I pray for her intelligence to be used wisely for God.

She is silly and spirited, but I pray for the silliness to give her a light-hearted view of life and the spirit to uplift those around her.

She is special and sweet, and on days when I feel frustrated, upset, or discouraged in parenting her, I remind myself that God is using each of these characteristics to grow her, to mold her, to form her into the woman she will one day become...just like me.


  1. Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest. What a a great mom you are!

  2. Your daughter is a cutie! I remember my mom saying the same thing. My daughters are grown and I am extremely proud of how they turned out. I look for my "good" qualities in them and how they seem to have ignored or forgiven my other qualities!

    Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

  3. Simplysandi-*blush* thanks I enjoy it!

    Carol-My poor mom says she wishes she would have never said that now. But, I honestly am not offended. I know I was a stinker as a child. I just hope my girls can find the "good" qualities in me too!

    Thanks for both stopping by!
