Today my first born and only daughter turned 12. I was always so confident I would have all girls. As we all know God's ways are higher than ours, we don't get to chose.

Checking out at Petco and I hear my #2 kid, Josiah, smacking on some food. 🤔 I think for a moment as I slowly turn my gaze to this unpredictable kid of mine.
