What Will They Remember?


They say if you just blink, your kids grow up before your eyes.  I am beginning to believe that statement.  My oldest child is now fourteen years old.  I remember when she was a baby as though it were only yesterday.  I am the blessed mother of four children, the above mentioned fourteen year old daughter, twelve year old son, eleven year old daughter and nine year old son.  My kids are growing up so fast.  I can hardly believe this is our last year in the single digits.  It brings a bitter sweet tear to my eye as I type this.

To read more, please join me over at Leaving A Legacy.  My very dear bloggy friend, Shari, is hosting the Legacy Series this week as well as she is beginning a brand new link up on Thursdays called Legacy Leaver Thursday.  If you are a blogger, please pray about joining her link up.  Head over now and check out Leaving A Legacy.

Do you cringe when you are asked, "What's for dinner?"  My answer is always "food."  My daughter finds it so funny to ask what kind of food and my response is "the edible kind."  Lorrie Flem, of Eternal Encouragement, gives some excellent advice in her book, What's For Dinner, Mom?  Not only does Lorrie give yummy recipes, but she also give scripture encouragement for feeding our families, kitchen organization tips, kitchen must haves and much more.  This is definitely a book you want to read if you are the cook in your home!

The Gabby Moms, whom I am reviewing for, will choose one commenter from one of the reviewing blogs.  If you would like to win this book, simply leave a comment below telling me why you want this book and tell me your favorite go to recipe (I may contact you to use your recipe on a Tasty Tuesday over at Woman to Woman).  The winner will be contacted via email so please make sure that you leave your email.

I received this e-book for free for the purpose of reviewing.  All opinions are my own.

Sweet Blessings~

  1. My oldest is getting ready to turn 15....time sure does fly. Thanks for the review :)

  2. Why...I don't of my stupid little pet peeves is for one of my kids to ask what's for dinner. I always figured if I had to make it...they were going to eat it no matter so it didn't make any difference what I was making. To this day, even though my kids are grown, I do not like to be asked what I'm making for dinner. I know, I'm strange. *smiles*

    My easiest go to meal would be 'Chicken Spaghetti.' I think you had it as a recipe on Tasty Tuesday once. It's easy, quick and inexpensive. Add some garlic bread and salad...Yummy!

  3. Yes - time does pass quickly and it's important to cherish each moment.


  4. Usually my answer is 'Whatever YOU can find'

  5. Indeed, time goes so fast..."what's for dinner?" is part of those moments you will eventually miss!
    Here's to enjoying right now!

  6. Barbara, excellent point. One day we will miss them asking what's for dinner!


Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts, I love hearing from you.
