I've got your back!!! Laughing and being silly!
Their Calendar Pose!!!

I have been reminiscing tonight, as you can see. I have always heard you should enjoy all the little moments. Even the hectic days and moments of being a mom. You turn around and they are grown up! Looking at these pics really brings those quotes home. I have enjoyed being a mom to these amazing young people. They have taught me so much about life, and living life. All of the hustle and bustle of ballgames, sleep~overs, camping trips, teaching them to drive cars and waiting up for them, and just being their mom, and along the way I have learned a lot about love. I think as young parents we worry to much about the many things which do not matter in the grand scheme of life! So just for today if you have a little one, hold them a little tighter, and give them an extra kiss. Today when they have one of their moments be patient with them. You will turn around and young adults will stand before you.

Just thought I would share my sweet ones with you all! I am so proud of this young man and this young lady. I hope I have given to them what they continue to give to me.

Your children are beautiful!! It made me sad to read your post. Marlee will be 18 months old on Monday and Maggie will be 3 months on the 16th. They both are changing everyday and getting bigger. It makes me want to keep them like this forever, but at the same time I can't wait to see what they become.

You are blessed to have two wonderful children!

Hi Shelia,

I remember when you had your children! You have done a wonderful job raising your children!

Setting a good Christian example for your children is the best character reference on the Application for Heaven.

Thank You for being such a wonderful friend and a wonderful example for others!

Only Through Him,

Joy Tubb

Two beautiful children and two wonderful Christian parents add up to a "forever" life. When things start to stress me out, I think, " In ten years from now will this really matter?" Most always the answer is NO! It helps put things in perspective for me. Can't believe our boys are graduating! Your children are beautiful on the inside and out - just like their mom! Have a great day!

Sheila. You are such a wonderful wonderful mother. It is sad how fast they grow and change. I just love these pictures. They are beautiful. I see so much of you in them. Thank you for reminding us to stop and notice little things before our little ones are grown.
