I love this!

I opened my emails today and found this from my Momma!
I love this so much!


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 grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenk's lawn.
 
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's 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 the 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.

Isn't it wonderful?!

XOXO
