From Ground Hog to Big Kid?

Isn't it funny how a certain date on the calendar brings back old feelings?

Hi, I’m Renee Swope for Proverbs 31 Ministries.

For my friend, Jill, Ground Hog Day always brings back memories of her pregnancy. All the ups and downs, queasiness, and cravings, and excitement! Jill’s daughter was due on February 2nd 2006. So, while she was expecting, she and her husband called their baby their little Ground Hog. The longer Jill was pregnant the more they joked that the baby might pop her head out and decide to go back inside for six more weeks.

This year on Ground Hog Day Jill was reminiscing about those days of waiting for her daughter to be born while watching her play in a weekly gymnastics class. Wow, how fast the years have flown by!

What a great reminder to try to enjoy every moment as our little ground hogs grow up to be big kids! For more encouragement, log on to!
