Karli's Last Day!

Today was a very sad day for me! I didn't even want to leave school and  I think I was the last one to leave the building.  I was not sad that the workshop was over.  (Sorry, Lisa!)

It was Karli's last official day at Lorene's.  :(  [tears]

She has been our babysitter for 13 years!  Isn't that amazing!  She started with Nathan and ended with Karli.  What an amazing gift she has been.  Words can not express my gratitude for this gift that she has given me as a working mom.  She taught my children, cared for my children, and loved my children so that I could teach.  I am so very grateful for her and thankful that God placed her in my life!  I know that it will not be the last time I see her but it is a phase in my life that is over.  I look back and can see God's handy work!  He knew the perfect person for me when I had Nathan and fretted (remember, Rhoda!) over finding just the right person to take care of him.  He also knew that she would be there for my other children that I would have five years later and continue on for the last.  I never had to worry!  God had it covered!

Now all of my children will be school age!  I will continue to put it all in God's hands.  He can handle it so much better than I can.  :)
(If I forget, please remind me!!)
