What a Day!

What a great day I have had. This morning my daughter got up and dressed up as a princess. I took her to my parents house where she went with my mom to a Grand-daughter and me princess tea at her church. They had so much fun learning what it meant to be a princess of the Lords. When I took her picture it hit me, she is so beautiful and she is growing up so fast, that before I know it this will be her getting dressed up for a date, or prom, or her wedding. Wow! I just can't believe how fast they grow and change right before your eyes. So, then they were off and I had an opportunity to spend the day alone with my Dad. I can't tell you the last time that happened. We loaded up the horses and went horse back riding. It has been many years since I have done that and my legs are reminding me every time I move tonight how long it has been. It was so much fun. We used to go riding all the time when I lived at home during high school and college. It really took me back to when I was a kid and got to spend time with my Daddy. I will cherish this day, it was so special to me. I just had to praise the Lord all day that things were going good, the weather was perfect and I had some time alone with my Daddy. Thank you Lord for all You blessed me with today!

I am so happy that you got to spend that time with your dad. We are not promised tomorrow and sometimes we let the precious time we are given slip through our fingers without producing any fruit. Last year as you know that I lost both of my papaws. One very unexpected and the other still hard to deal with but had a little time to process and come to terms with before Jesus called him home. Time is a precious gift that we sometimes squander away. I am glad you had time to jsut be with your dad.
