As my girls are getting older and they BOTH have boyfriends now, I am beginning to see what life is going to be like in the future for our little family. Our little family of FOUR will someday grow to SIX!
I used to think that I wanted FOUR children, then that would insure me that I would have a big family! Then, after I got a little older, well..... that thought changed and I decided that THREE children would be the perfect number!
David and I married in 1985. Then, two years later.... God gave us our precious, Ashley. Our plan was to have another baby in three years. But, when that time came... we weren't ready! So, we waited another year and.... God gave us our precious, Miranda.
Not long after Miranda was born, our minds changed about having that "third" child! Two was plenty!! LOL!! We would be the perfect little family of FOUR. So, that is how it has been for 19 + years.
Now, of course, David and I are getting older and so are our girls. We can feel the next chapter of our lives approaching. The chapter where our girls meet someone, fall in love, get married and move out of the house. This is an exciting feeling, but also a tearful one at the same time.
Yesterday, we spent the day together.... all SIX of us. It was a nice feeling.
My mind kept thinking about the past and the future. We are still a family of FOUR at the moment, but will become a family of SIX before too long. Then..... what will our number be???? EIGHT?? TEN?? FOURTEEN???
WOW!! I can't wait!!
