Wonder.. a Verb

Happy Friday!  I'm linking up with Lisa-Jo at for her five minute unedited writing challenge.  The subject today is "Wonder."  There are many wonder-filled moments around here with my five but today I'm going to write using wonder as a know, those things that keep us moms/sisters/girlfriends/wives up at night long after everyone else is tucked in.

So, here goes.  Start:

I wonder:
if the twins know that we love them individually even though they have to do everything together right now
if my 17 year old knows that we are truly proud of his accomplishments and that we really would like to communicate beyond one word sentences
if my 12 year old is going to always want to go for nightly walks with me - I hope so
if the paci-fairy is going to have the nerve to take Lana Grace's pacis away next month when she is three
if sleep deprivation could be cured without having to get more sleep
what kind of spouses my children will have - praying hard here for Godly individuals that God is already preparing
if my house feels like home to those who enter
if I can scar my children with too much Barney during "meal preparation time"
if I can do better today than yesterday
if there are wrongs that I need to right
if my children and husband know that I love them beyond words and if my words, my actions, and my life reflect even a glimmer of Christ

Five minutes is up....I wonder what my three little ones have destroyed. :)


  1. I think we all have our own insecurities and wonderments about what we are doing wrong. I have recently also started praying for a godly spouse for when my daughter is older and it truly makes me realize how much our marriage is an example for her. Its a huge job, this whole parenting thing but with God's help I hope I can go a pretty good job :).

  2. the heart of a mother.

  3. Oh, thanks for the smile. :o)

  4. Your house does feel like a home!
