Yup, my little sister is now gone from single numbers to those dreaded double digits. I just can’t believe that she is now a teenager! Yeah, yeah, I’m already getting programmed for those years ahead. I mean, we all know how it goes: boys, drama, best friend drama and–I’ll just stop there. Lol!
But I will say that I was truly blessed with the best little sister, and I do look forward to helping guide her in the right path and being a good example for her. I want to see her grow up to be a beautiful god-fearing girl. 🙂
Anyways, yesterday morning my sisters and I were already having breakfast when my Mom came out of her bedroom. She went about her usual routine that I began to wonder if she had forgotten it was Daisy’s birthday. I mean, usually whenever it is one of our birthday’s, she comes and hugs us first thing in the morning; but today was different. So I got up from my seat and motioned my Mom to her room.
Me: Mom, do you remember what day it is?
Mom: (smiles) I know, it’s Daisy’s birthday. I have not forgotten. How could I? Everyday I remember, and it still hurts. I could never forget my children. You will understand one day.
That stuck with me the rest of the day and it just filled me with such awe…a love that never forgets. No wonder God compares a mother’s love with the love and care He has for us!
A mother would gladly die in her child’s place, and you know something? Jesus already did that for you and me.
“Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.” Isaiah 49:15 KJV
Oh yeah, I’m back! 😛 Sweet winter break! I promise I’ll be here at least till my last semester in college. Haha! Love you guys!
