Well Adjusted Jayla and Her Great Big Grace

Jayla, aware of my self induced woeful state wrote me this e mail last night: 
I love you so much mom!! You are a wonderful, kind, generous, pretty, smart, loving, great singer, undiscovered famous dancer, thoughtful, accepting, exceptional, envied, loved completely, understanding, outstanding, worries about her children who she fully loves, board game champion, fantastic cook, efficient shopper, humble, mother and you should never forget or feel differently. I just wanted to assure you that you are amazing and the boys will always be ridiculously naughty and you are not the source of it. This is truly and completely honestly how I feel. 
My Sincerest  love,
Jayla  PS: I know I'm not supposed to be on my iPod at night but I needed time to construct this email and I'm getting off now. Sweet dreams!

Life is great

And my tears turned glad...

p.s. Apparently I was confusing in my last blog post regarding my weeks of pregnancy. Yes, I lost the baby at 10 weeks and I mentioned being pregnant for 6 weeks. It's because by the time I knew I was with child I was 4 weeks along. Get it? Got it? Good!

Tisha, My 12 yo daughter wrote me a note with very similar encoouragement this summer. So precious to have our children encouraging us in hard moments. :)

Ridiculously naughty. I love it! Sweet Jayla. I just love those girls that can speak life and joy into a Mama's heart. I have one of those, too, and if I take the time to look at myself through her eyes instead of through mine, then all is well. Through their eyes, we are amazing. Jayla, I'm pretty sure that you are forgiven for being up late, and that your mom will make your bedtime midnight if it will always produce such e-mails!

Oops--that was from Lindy, not Jay! Who's Jay??? My little emancipated "Henry" boy.
