Yesterday was my Birthday as always it was wonderful. Got up and had breakfast at IHOP with my mom, dad, McKenzie and Randy then off to alittle shopping with my mom, went to a birthday party at the park for a one year old and lastly went to the Frisco Roughriders baseball game with my family and Sunday school class. Great time with GREAT company.
This past weekend we went camping with my parents. Friday we fished, played on a playground, walked around in the woods, and tried to fly a kite. It was so hot, that we were hot and sweaty. When we were walking around, I told McKenzie that this weekend was what Mimi and Papa gave her for her special day....McKenzie said "Camping, so I can be tired and exhausted all weekend". We all got a good laugh at that.
This morning we were getting ready to go to our first Ladies Tea together with Mimi and Auntie. Mimi called to let us know that Derian's (McKenzie 4 year old cousin) dog had to be put down last night. This dog is like family and Derian calls him his brother. Very sad and emotional. I got off the phone and told McKenzie, "mommy has some very sad news"...I told her and McKenzie said "I have a verse for Derian, God prepares a place for us and Brutus (the dog) is in heaven with Jesus and if Derian has Jesus in his heart, he will see Brutus agian." I eye swelled up with tears. Here is my 4 year old precious little girl that already has the gift from God to say the most comforting words in a time that someone needs it. GOD IS SO GOOD. Aunt Kim, Uncle Mark and Derian, we love you and we know your heart is broken, We are sorry so for this heartache.
God is so good. I have been married to my best friend for 17 years and we have been blessed with a beautiful little girl. McKenzie is 4 years old and the light of our life. God has blessed me with a wonderful family and the BEST parents in the world.
