Thoughts

My mother sent me an email recently that I am just getting around to reading and I wnated to share some of the quotes from it. Rather then share them all at once, I thought that over the next couple of days I would share one or two. Today I choose this one because as I am sitting here in my living room with it half cleaned up, with my apron on trying to prepare my lesson for church on Sunday while the kids are napping, before I get to the dinner I need to cook because we are feeding the missionaries from our church tonight, i found THIS one perfect for ME today! Hopefully it will be PERFECT for someone else who reads this too! Have a wonderful day!

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Got that email too! She has the best quotable comments! One of her quotes has been my facebook quote since I joined and first filled out my info. Good luck with getting all of your stuff done. I've got to clean tonight after work for the Open House tomorrow. Sunday I teach my primary class and then have to come home and pack and then at like 4:30 am on Monday we are off for our trip up North to see Scott & family and Aaron & family. We get back just in time for Noah's Open House night where he meets his new teacher and gets his schedule and then he starts school only 2 days later. Whoo-hoo!! Wish me luck, and I'll wish you luck! Love and miss you guys!!
