Just a kid in a big person's body...

I am most definitely not rich in the monetary sense of the word, but I have {several} something(s) that money can't buy.  I am blessed beyond measure.  I am the proud momma of 8 beautiful {if I do say so myself} children.  Why God, in His mercy and grace, bestowed them unto me, is a mystery.  I am SO lacking in the world's best mother of the year department.  Do you ever feel like you are still just a kid...just older, and ahem...bigger?  When I was a kid, I always thought that when you became an adult {ya know, like when you turned 18...yeah right} some kind of switch came on and you were a totally different person with all knowledge and on and so forth...BOY was I naive!  I'm still waiting for that magic "switch" to turn on, for some neon sign to say, "you are an adult now".  Yes, I know I'm playing it up bigger than what it really is, and Yes, I know I'm an adult...(some may disagree) but at the same time I've been married now for nearly 20 years {wow, I'm getting old} and there are times it hits me in the head that I'm just an older kid with just a little more knowledge than some of the other kids, and I want to rare back and say, "Hey, I'm bigger than you, and I know more than you do"...yep, sounds real adult, don't ya think?  

Anyway, I said all that to say, I am blessed.  And I am so grateful to be blessed with my dear husband and kiddos.  I would be lost without them.  And I am SO thankful they put up with me and my kiddish ways.  I love them so much!
