Have you ever?

Have you ever had days or weeks that you felt like you were in the movie groundhog day?

Have you ever felt like all you do is referee your kids squawbles?

Have you ever stared at your kids" sleeping beautiful faces?

Have you ever threatened to throw something out the car window that the kids are fussing over?

Have you ever dreamed of what you would do and where you would go if you suddenly became very wealthy?

Have you ever wanted to take every thing out of you house and start over with organizing from scratch?

Have you ever sat outside and night and looked at the stars and talked to God and felt extremely close to Him?

Have you ever needed to wash your kids sheets but decided another week won't kill them?

Have you ever wondered how you would have done had you taken that sports scholarship?

Have you ever fallen asleep at your computer?

Have you ever had to make hard decisions that you knew would hurt someone you love?

Have you ever blown right through a stop sign while putting Arby's sauce on your sandwich?

Have you ever had to convince your kids that the car behind you is not an unmarked police car that is after you for running that stop sign?

Have you ever bawled your eyes out over the loss of a pet because you know how much your kids loved her?

Have you ever swung high on the swings with your kids and felt like a kids again?

Have you ever eaten 3 mini candybars and gone back for a 4th?

Have you ever blared a family favorite song in the car and sang at the top of your lungs with the kids?

Have you ever wished you didn't let the little things get to you?

Have you ever thought that your laundry basket is a bottomless pit?

Have you ever read sad stories of sick kids and been so extremely grateful that your children are healthy?

Have you ever wished your kids would stop growing up so fast?

Have you ever felt extremely blessed and thankful?

....Have i ever!
