So sayeth Kellie

Today Kellie and I were having some together time, doing errands, heading over the bridge to the neighboring town.

I love spending one-on-one time with each of my girls. I learn what's on their minds, drink in their essence, and alone time with Mama makes them feel special, like going on a date with me. I hear lots of interesting and blog-worthy things too.

Kellie is my talker. At 5-and-a-hundred years old, she never misses anything and always has something to say about things. Her name literally means "Shining One Who Is Gracious", and she definitely does shine!!

This afternoon Kellie and I were driving along, enjoying each other, and while we were waiting at a stop light she suddenly said "Jesus is as tall as Daddy, and God's as tall as the sky."

I said, "Oh really?"

And she said, "And God loves everypeople in the world."

See? She's a wise soul in a tiny girl's body.

Thank You, Lord, for loaning me this small, charming, shining girl! I love her so much!

She does sound charming! :)
I enjoy alone time with my kids too! Although...sometimes being away from them is good too. Yesterday I went on a field trip with my three older kids while my own 5and a hundred year old stayed with another mom. We were gone all day and once we got home I just wanted to sit and snuggle with her all evening. I didn't realize how much I had missed her until I saw her.

She is a darling.

I love having alone time. When I'm not distracted by the needs of everybody else, it's so much easier to realized how amazingly unique and fun all my kids are.
