Thirty years ago, I became a mother. (Thirty years ago, I became a mother?!!)
Yes, my firstborn is thirty years old this week...Kristin, the dear little red-haired girl who came to grace the world and our lives with her beauty.
Today, Kristin is a loving wife to Brian and mother to four delightful children with another due to arrive in a few weeks. And I do want to be more like her!
Kristin is patient.
Kristin is decisive.
Kristin is organized.
Kristin is thrifty.
She blesses her family with her ability to live frugally "without feeling deprived." (Her dad is impressed with this.) Check out her summer Thrifty Thursday blog series for some of her tips.
Kristin is giving.
I am so grateful that Kristin is who she is, despite her all-too-human mother who was learning on the job.
I look at her...and I see His grace.
Happy Birthday, Kristin!
