Yesterday two of ‘my kids’ got married. I sat with some of ‘my kids’ and some other leaders that I served with, and I thought, I wonder if they know how much I love them? I hardly ever see them, and sometimes I read their facebook status’s and I’m like ‘yikes’ and sometimes I’m like ‘yay’ I love them so much!!! Every time I hugged them I felt like my heart was going to burst!
I kept telling them to come over! I’ll cook! I love hearing about their lives, I love seeing them smile, I love watching them grow, and I close my eyes when the choices might end up looking like a train wreck (it happens)!
I hope they know that there is always a meal at my house, a hug waiting, a listening ear.
I know that my life might not look like much, or that people don’t understand why I serve, but I think I get to love more than I deserve, and in return, I get more love than I deserve.
I’m one blessed woman!
