Seeing differences in your children is only natural. Having a girl and a boy; it is inevitable that there would be differences due to their gender. However sibling comparisons often occur when you have children of the same gender and it often happen between sisters.
My mother loved to dress my sister and I the same when we were younger. This despite the fact that she is 7 years older than me.
On the eve of my dad’s 70th Birthday, I find myself writing this blog post but feel a little perturbed. The whole time my main focus was on his milestone celebration. Joyful and grateful that God’s grace was bestowed on my dad’s life.
But with all this hype – I failed to take into account that my dad is ageing. Not just my dad but that I lost focus that my parents (including in-laws) are ageing.
A birthday message to my daughter on her eleventh birthday
Today my sweet girl you are ELEVEN. How is this even possible? I guess, I said the same thing when you turned ten. Looking at you today, so much have changed over the past eleven years. Whenever your birthday comes along, I get a bit emotional as the memory of your birth will never leave me.
To my dearest husband, Brent. Today marks 13 years of a successful marriage and I decided to dedicate this post to you. I think this has been the easiest post I’ve written as it required no research, brainstorming and no in-depth thinking. I know that you are an extremely private person and don’t want to be put on the spot but this post comes straight from my heart. This is not another anniversary post, which is sappy, spill my gushy feelings type of blog post.
