Not Me Monday - Nope, There's NOT A Giveaway!

Friday night is family night!

We make homemade pizza and watch a movie.

BUT

If it's nice outside, who can give up an evening picnic under the stars pointing out constellations?!

So, if my daughter were to drop her pizza upside down on the way out the side door onto the doormat, I would never pretend like I didn't see her as she picked it up to put back on her plate.

Nope, not me!

I'd at least inspect the pizza to make sure there weren't any hairs or leaves on it get her a sanitary piece of pizza!

Speaking of my daughter...

Yes, I'm a mother.  But to a six-year-old?!

Nope, not me.

I'm only 19, in college studying music, playing soccer and looking for Mr. Right.  I would never turn 32 and become a mother of 3, much less a mother to a beautiful little girl who turns 6 years old today!

Nope, not me!


That 6-year-old would never turn into a little "me" walking around, constantly picking up after her little brothers, crying when things are out of place and arguing until her opponent tells her that she's right.

Nope, not me her!

Because if I were a mom to a 6-year-old little girl, I would be more aware of who I really am.  I would be forced to see what I am really like behind closed doors, as only a mom can see.  I would thank the Lord for His faithfulness and graciousness to me, to bless me, in spite of myself, with 3 beautiful children, who challenge me to be a better mom, wife and teacher.

Because that is what a parent is, right?

Speaking of teaching...

I always have a rhyme and reason to these Not Me Monday posts, so I'd never let you know that I was asked to Guest Post at the Internet Cafe and leave you a link to a giveaway of my book because you only have 7 more days until it begins!

Nope Not Me!


Oh...and I'd never tag a P.S. on a Not Me Monday post either...so, just pretend that this didn't happen and that you already knew that Josh is going in the studio with the guys at the end of the week to track a song to go along with each week of my devotional to help your kids remember the verses, k?!  K!  Make sure to check back here at the beginning of each week to download your song for the week:)
