Well I will compare my life to a good movie. I feel so blessed and overwhelmed with all the wonderful things that I have. Today I am very overwhelmed with my love for my children. I don't know what I did to deserve for beautiful healthy children, but I am so grateful to have them in my life.
Sure they can be sassy, crazy, give me anxiety, snack all the time in the not eat their dinner, fight with each other, fight with me, not go to sleep for two hours after putting them to bed, Color on the walls, get paint on my wood floor, be very naughty for babysitters, stick things in their nose or ears or mouth that they shouldn't, cry uncontrollably and whine all the time, but they are mine- all mine.
My father in heaven trusted me and Brian to bring them into this dark world and raise them in light. He trusted us with their sweet spirit and they're loving little bodies and their bright minds. I am so grateful that he is trusted me with four of these choice spirits. They are strong, sweet, caring, loving, funny, spiritual little people.
I was cleaning upstairs today and when I went into boots is room to open up his blinds, I looked at the wall where there were three pieces of printer paper taped together. On them he had drawn a picture of the ocean with a large whale and a small turtle that spanned across all three papers. I cried when I saw this and immediately wanted to see him and put my arms around him and tell him how beautiful it is and how artistic he is.
Next I went into the girls room where it was kind of a mess and as I picked up their dirty clothes and put them in the hamper, all I wanted to do was snuggle with them in their little pajamas wrapped up in their dirty little loved on blankets.
The reason for this post today is to remind myself as a mother how very blessed I am to have three children. There are people all over the world who have nothing and many people who have no children. I am so lucky. I promise to my father in heaven to take care of them and raise them to my best abilities and it will challenge me most days but I know that they will walk away stronger and so will I.
