By the time you hear today’s podcast, my baby will have turned 30 years old. When did that happen?
It seems like yesterday that her dad and I were daily flopping down on the nearest chairs, exhausted. We were just hoping and praying we’d make it through her toddler years. She exited the womb full throttle and stayed that way pretty much through school. Chasing her was the only workout we ever needed.
Too often – and to my shame – I found myself wishing for that season to pass so I could catch my breath. Now, I’d give all the breath I have to hear her bubbling laughter just one more time.
Now, she is a caring adult who juggles work and relationships and the minutia of life with grace. She’s also an awesome web designer. I like her. I mean, I love her…of course, I do. But isn’t it nice when you can say you like your kids too?
So happy birthday, Megan. I’m so proud of you!
May the Lord bless you and protect you;
May the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you;
May the Lord look with favor on you
And give you peace.
