What I Aspire To

“I don’t want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone’s garden.I want to be there with children’s sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.”

I didn't know you had a blog. Now I can keep up to date with whats going on in the King household!

Your children are so adorable. I remember when Collin was a baby. Where has the time gone? Your baby boy is so adorable....and I bet your little princess is spoiled rotten by her dad. I enjoyed reading your blog!
