The Best Part of Having Grown Children


Today is Kayla’s 23rd birthday. I never imagined, in all the years I spent praying for my children’s future spouses, that having a daughter-in-law would be such a blessing to ME! Kayla is not only like my own daughter… she’s also a wonderful and fun friend! We LOVE hanging out together. We love makeup, and movies, and shopping, oh, and we both love Kale with all our hearts.

So, for those of you with little ones, those of us who have raised our children really do mean it when we say the time goes by so fast and your children will be grown in the blink of an eye.  And you will miss it!  But, just know there are some really sweet, wonderful times ahead also! I know we’ve been blessed.

Happy Birthday, sweet, sweet Kayla!! We love you!
