we’re preparing today for my 1st borns 15th birthday party. our kassidi has grown into quite the young little lady. i am so proud of her! and like a sap, i went through old pictures this week and all i can do, presently even, is bawl. it went so dang fast! but im trying to focus on the here and now, cause the here and now is what we have and what is promised. im soaking in every minute with her that i can. and im also working on a way to slow down time. i’ll let you know how that pans out πŸ˜•

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Beautiful Kass. So strange I’ve never met you, and yet am so incredibly proud of who you are at 15. I hope your day is more amazing than you imagined.

    My favorite post this week:

    Have a Very Happy Birthday Kass! πŸ™‚

    From what i personally have found, Kass is a remarkably Gifted young woman (Sorry Tam that’s what your little girl has just about become) πŸ˜‰ who has managed to stay centred and with a very solid foundation in her life (for which you can take your share of the credit for Him).

    So glad i was able to share some of life with you, Kass and hope there is more to come – you are a great inspiration to all you come into contact with – never lose sight of that.

    and Tam? – nice job, Hun. Ya Dun Good πŸ˜‰

      I’m just way too sappy to be reading comments like this.

      She is a good kiddo. Yes. Kiddo. I’m mom. What I say goes!

      Thank you for word, love. They mean a lot.

    Happy Birthday Kass! And no more worms…be kind to your mom (do you know how hard it is for an Australian to type “mom” ???)

    From the interwebvoyeuristic (!) way Diane and I have come to know you and the whole #hodgeclan these past few months, it’s obvious how awesome you all are… God’s got great things in store for you!

    Anyway, another quiet week down under in terms of quantity while I worked on some short, commissioned instrumental pieces…fun, but it eats the blogging time.

    However, it’s been a big week for visitors strangely enough – my most commented post and some great practical Christianity thoughts on another

    But…me being me…I’m putting up this one. I’m HUGE now you know

    Father God on this day help Kas celebrate life in You. Give her joy pece and happiness.
    Happy Birthday Kas. Have a wonderful day!!!

    Losing the awe and wonder of a child of God.

    Happy Birthday Kass. I hope your day is wonderful!

    Happy Birthday Kass! Today, 04/17 is my little girl’s birthday as well. She is working on her 3rd round of 15! Time goes by so fast Tam & Brent as you well know. Cherish these moments. These are God-given moments.

    Happy Bday Kass!

    If you’re a reader of tam’s blog and haven’t made your way over to mine (not that mine compares to this gloriousness) check it out.

    This week’s post worthy of pimpage is a fun take on learning to play the drums WITHOUT a drumset. I’m asking for as many people possible to come over and (if you’ve got a cam) leave a seesmic video comment in the comments section of you playing your lap drums! Or if you want to do a stand alone blog post about it and link that would be fine as well πŸ™‚

    A few have already lap drummed and it’s pretty fun to watch!
