Hi darling - ah Sela! Isn't she fabulous; such a woman is our girl :-) I agree with Pammie - I too enjoyed your blog yesterday and agree with your premise on forgiveness. And I also agree that in Jesus we have the greatest & most reliable Friend ever.
Loads of love to you all today, sweetheart - M xox


I heard your little parable in just a little different fashion. It goes: a man on his deathbed will never wish he had spent more time at work.


Ha! Sela's behaviour is very typical of our crew, especially the girls. It seems that toddlers and preschoolers are either Very Very Happy or else Very Very Angry or Very Very Sad. There is almost no middle ground, they seem quite bipolar. It's hard when they are suddenly over the tantrum and sweet again, while you still remember and feel cross!
Sometimes you just never figure out what was the hair-trigger event that made them switch modes.

I love your quote. I'm already there - I wish dearly to spend a day with our babies again, or our 2 year olds, or 3 year olds... I know how it was hard work, but there were such fun times! Today K M and R are celebrating their 6th birthday, and we're both delighted and appalled. (And they still have meltdowns and tantrums fairly frequently, especially when tired.)

I'm so glad Sela's pox are improving. Nobody should have to feel so miserable.
Best wishes,


Does this ever bring back memories. Sounds like you handled it brilliantly.

Yes, it is so true. We would give ANYTHING to get this back, so we need to live in the moment and enjoy it.

On that note, I am off to take my younger two out for a bike ride in the sunshine, while the older two finish their school assignments.

Always a pleasure to read your blog!


I love that story. What a funny little girl!
I'm glad that you are loving your time with your beautiful children:)


Doesn't sound like she is progressing too far in her 're-educate mommy' phase. Well, perhaps when she's a teen-ager she can get you moving.
