Growing pains

I am the one with growing pains, of course, not these sweet girls.

The freckles that now sprinkle across the bridge of her nose. The way she tells us "I do it" every day.

The way this sweet, caring older sister asks more questions, searches more truths and spreads her wings, all while keeping her loving, pure heart close to home.

As I teeter on the balancing beam of motherhood wishing to freeze time while I welcome the new adventures of the next day.


  1. You are an incredible mother. I hope to be like you when I grow up.

  2. can't wait to play some banjo for the girls next week in the mountains!!!

  3. Amen, I feel the same way. Love that they are growing and changing but feel sad about it at the same time.
