What It's Like to Live with an Angel

Last night I attended a belated Christmas party because it was among a group of my friends who are coming over next week to help me pack. I really don't do anything at night anymore except for the occasional wedding or necessary function. I came home exhausted to see the above note taped to the kitchen door.

I've always told people that God didn't really prepare me for parenting by giving me Mackenzie first. She is an angel and God uses her over and over again in my life to remind me of that very fact.

Thank you so much my sweet Mackenzie! I love you!

Very reminiscent of a perfect little angel that God gave to me years ago She grew into a perfect little mother and has given me perfect little grandchildren!!! MOM

Geez, I came here to comment that your daughter's note brought tears to my eyes and then I see that your mom left you a sweet comment too! What a lovely family :)

P.S. can't wait to see pics of the house!

I too have a Mackenzie, her name is spelled the same as your Mackenzie's!!! Perhaps it is the name!?! Mine too is a special little gal. She is almost 9 years old. Sweet are their feet!!! I LOVE the SWEET AROMA OF JESUS that lingers in her path. Oh, LORD WILLING that will remain. I sure PRAY that it does, and I PRAY that her 5 year old sister follows. Sweet are your stories, THANK YOU for sharing them. GOD BLESS YOU!!!

What a gift! I can relate on the limited evening activities too. I manage about one errand a day and then I feel like I need at least two naps to recover.

aww, now that is awesome!
I can only hope my kids take the initiative and do stuff like this.
Here I was thinking how sweet it was that my son brings me a glass of milk in a wine glass. But I had to ask for the milk.

Re: reading (responding to your comment on my blog). I read just about every available minute. If my kids are occupied, I'm reading. When they are in bed, I'm reading. I often read to the detriment of the housework and I'm working on that. But, really, I love it so much that I give up sleep for it. Besides, I'm not trying to finish building a house and packing up an existing house and growing a baby at the same time. ;)

Thanks for all the comments. If she's this great now, who knows what kind of incredible woman she'll grow into.

Your mom's comment is the best! Sounds like angels abound in your family.

As a teacher of students with emotional/behavioral disabilities, I have to wish everyone saw their little ones as angels, because they all are when they get here :)

As a former teacher of the same kind of students, I have to say that I agree with you 100%.

That is SO sweet! I think it just goes to show what wonderful parents she has!

Your blog is very sweet and I enjoy reading.

Too sweet!

We were also blessed with a very, very good and very sweet first child. I think this was God's way of making me immediately want another one. LOL Of course, then we had Jack who was very difficult baby (and is still kind of a difficult kid). Very crazy! I agree -- my first did NOT get me ready for me second.
