My Sunshine

I don’t know if it is the age, the testing of the limits, or her mom, but Reese has been giving us all sorts of attitude lately. We will go days with constant arguing, disobeying, and just plain out being mean. And then there will be a day where the clouds part, the sun comes out, and there are smiles all around.

Today was a day of sunshine. Don’t get me wrong, she still tested the limits but it was mostly a day of happy. Tonight after dinner she was sitting in Lance’s lap, playing and giggling. I just looked at her for a minute and felt so blessed. She is MINE…God entrusted her to me. I am responsible for teaching her, growing her, and LOVING her.

On our rough days I try to remember that she is sweet. She is so loving.  She is so precious to me. And remember that we will have these rough days but there is always sunshine ahead in the form of a sweet and spicy curly headed little girl!

I think it's the age because I am experiencing the same thing with Handley. Some days she is her loving, sweet self, but some days it's like we are getting a glimps of the teenage years and it isn't pretty. Like you, I have to constantly remind myself that she is still the sweet little girl I know and love.
