Here I go again...as in my second attempt to stick with a blog. After much encouragement from friends and family, I have decided to give it another shot. I honestly can't think of anyone interested in the daily goings-on in our little life, but my goal through this is to get those day-to-day moments and memories down in writing so that years from now, they will not be forgotten. Maybe it's because we recently added a second child to our family and I'm suddenly remembering all the things I had forgotten from when my first was a baby...things that I thought "oh, I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it." Wrong.
The Lord teaches me a lot through my boys and if writing about those moments make me a better child of God, wife, Mama, human - then I'm all for it. My God knows I need all the help I can get!
Quick Explanation - My oldest Harrison actually inspired the name "Mud in Heaven." Anyone who knows this sweet-souled boy of mine knows he adores dirt in all forms - A true boy. And as most nearly 4-year-olds, he is full of questions. So we're outside just the other and he's playing in the mud (his MOST favorite form of dirt) and he so innocently asks me, "Mama, you think there's mud in heaven?" I said, "Well, yeah, probably so." He says, "Good. Maybe Jesus will take me for a ride in the mud in Him's big truck." I say (laughingly), "I'm sure He will if you ask him." His reply, "Yep. He will." So simple-minded...like I should be. That's one of those little moments that I would be bound to forget had I not taken the seconds to write it down.
My goal is to post regular updates, stories, lessons, etc about my family and the things God's teaching me along the way. Wish me luck!
