Psalm 127:3-5

Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.

Psalm 127:3-5

Growing up

Well we watched Quincy grow up a tremendous amount when he beat the kid who had handed him his only wrestling loss. Saturday he has his chance at revenge, worked through his nerves and tears, and put the beat down on that kid. It was hard and yet awesome to see him go through that. Today I watched Carter be brave while an ENT put a camera through his nose to look at his vocal cords. I watch Mackenzie drive away multiple times a week in our car or van. Each time I watch these events unfold, I wonder if I remembered to hold them enough when they were little, or took the time to really enjoy them as babies, toddlers, and pre schoolers or did I just wish it all away as life gets chaotic, and I never get time away, or life is just a lot of work. I need to remember to slow down and enjoy this ride. Remembering that this period of my life is not going to be easy, but that does not mean it cannot be enjoyed to the fullest because wow it goes by fast.

The verdict on Carter is nodules on his vocal cords. Most likely caused by a six week coughing spell he went through in Oct through mid November. He will be having surgery to remove them in May. Also will be seeing a speech therapist to make sure there is nothing wrong with the way he is using his voice.

Kyler needs a refill on his happy pills as he has been a bit of a grump the last two days.
