30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me: #13

What’s the hardest part of growing up?
I'm not going to sugar coat it.  Growing up is hard sometimes.
I think the hardest part of growing up is moving away from your mom and dad.  It can be exciting...but it can also seem scary.
You have what is called bills.  They're extremely stressful.  And expensive.
You have to take care of yourself whenever you're sick which makes you feel extra miserable.  And after you have kids it gets even worse because they still have to be taken care of no matter how lousy you feel!
Sometimes you have to be brave enough to check out what's going bump in the night.
The holidays are a lot of fun, especially when you have kids, but there's also a feeling of sadness deep down inside when you can't go home.
I could list many more things that are hard, but I don't want to depress you. ;)  You'll figure it out on your own in due time.
Not everything about growing up is hard.  There are some things that are wonderful!  You will experience young love, feeling rich when you get your very first paycheck from your first job, learning how to drive, your wedding day, your first much, much more!
God has granted us all a special gift -- He gave us life!  And when we have Jesus living in our hearts, we enjoy our lives all the more!  Don't ever change Zoe, Max, and Titus.  Always find beauty in the little things.  The leaves we find on our nature walks are beautiful, the ants we see working hard on the sidewalks are amazing creatures, the sky is a beautiful blue, and snowmen are our favorites because they make us happy.  Enjoy this life and every stage in it.  Even adulthood. =)
