These were the days

These were the days when my kids still say mommy,
When the world is still so full of wonder,
When reading a book is all they ask of us,
When snowball fights and snowmen are the perfect winter

I will cherish these days with everything in me,
I will love my kids and read with them,
I will make the best snowman ever,

These were the days when my kids still want to hug me,
WHen I am their favorite person,
WHen there favorite song is still "Twinkle, Twinkle little star"

Oh my dear children, I will cherish these days with you,
I love your hugs and singing with you,

Moving on.....

Well it looks like i'm finally back up and running! I can finally log on to my own blog again. SO many things have been going on lately. Just 2 mths left till graduation and then finally it will be time to leave this place. I didn't want to leave for a while and now all i can think about is getting out of here. BUt oh the packing that needs to be done in order to be ready on time.
Its so funny to me how time changes people. I look back and see how Ramon and I were when we first came here and realize the amount that we have changed. We really aren't even the same people anymore. In so many ways we were still kids. The experiences and circumstances that we have gone through since being here have turned us into adults. (whether we like it or not) :)
The people that we have had the privilege of meeting and some even becoming close and dear friends. The trials that the Lord has allowed us to go through in order to bring us closer to Him. The heartaches that we have experienced both separatly and as a couple. All the joy that God has given to us. The indescribable way that Lord has allowed us to see HIS hand moving amongst HIS people. I haven't attended a single class here and yet I feel as though I have learned so much. I consider myself priviledged to be able to serve GOd in the way that He has called my family!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I guess what I'm trying to say in this blog is that I'm ready to move on. I'm ready to start this next phase that the Lord has for us. Pray for us as we prepare ourselves for the rest of the journey. The great part is that we know where the ending will take us it's just the part in the middle that is a mystery.
