Wordless Wednesday


Hehehe. This has been on my desk for some time now. I couldn't decide if I had the nerve to post it! This is my Junior prom picture, 1995. You can see Kane and I in the center, but we didn't go together. Our dates are the ones at our side...four months later we were dating each other.

Susie said...

LOVE IT! You look beautiful and Kane is a dead ringer for Zack on Saved by the Bell. Hahah! Who are the others????

Cheri said...

Oh I'm SOOOOOO glad you posted this.
I'm still chuckling over Kanes hair- he does kind of look like Zack on Saved by the bell.
Great picture!

Hahahahahah...I think I just wet my pants! I remember that dress and James' cowboy hat. And did Ilka not get the memo that you're supposed to wear a PROM dress to PROM?! Okay, and Kane's hair has temporarily blinded me. Wow. Thanks for a great laugh! :)love, Carrie

That is so hilarious! It's fun to look back at some of those old pictures and see the styles. It's something how we change through the years - hopefully for the better?

Luv it! :) Have I seen this pic before? Did you have it in our room in college?!

Cracking UP! I don't know what's funnier. Kane's hair or the fact that YOU went to prom with whoever that is. Doesn't fit at all! Glad you switched with your date. Surfer boy over Cowboy Bob anyday! he he he! By the way, you look like a little socialite compared to everyone else! Very Glam for high school! :)

Hey Leslie,

You don't know me, but I was praying to God today about wether he wanted me to be a mom. I then came across your site. I am 24 years old and married my college sweetheart. I want 4 kids too. I was just curious as to how you knew you wanted to be a mom? I work at a daycare with 10-14 month olds and I know it is exhausting work and I think god had me find your site as an answer to prayer. I have been a christian since I was 16. I love the girls in their easter dresses they are so cute! I work with our youth group at our church. I love it!

I did not always want to be a mom, in fact I don't particularly like kids. I never enjoyed babysitting and rarely did it. I once, as an adult, babysat a friend's child. That baby screamed the whole day. As I left, I called my hubby and told him I never wanted kids at all.

At some point I felt that that wasn't God's will. It certainly didn't mesh with His creation of the family and His commands to multiply and fill the earth. So, my husband and I began to pray about it. Over the course of a few months, God drastically changed our hearts. It was truly a miracle and an answer to prayer. A few months later, at the age of 26, I became pregnant. I love being a mom, I couldn't imagine doing anything else. I still don't really love other children that much...but when they are your own it is completely different. It is an incomparable and indescribable love and joy. A little taste of what the Father must feel for us.

I cannot tell you that it's not exhausting, especially when they are between 1 and 3. But, what I can tell you is that it is completely worth it...every second. Best wishes and many blessings to you and your family.
