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 the kids to scout camp. I want there to be 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.

Day 2 -- Star of David

Tonight is the 2nd night of Hanukkah. Makea Star of David.

I do these every year in preschool, so maybe this was kind of cheating, but any opportunity to pull out paint works for my kids. I put the stars together using craft sticks, then let my kids go to town with paint and glitter. I planned to teach them a little about what Hanukkah is, but after a glitter accident and a meltdown, it just didn't happen. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.
