my kids

I am so grateful for my kids. They are my joy in life. I often think how sad life must be for those people who decide not to have children, for whatever reason. True joy comes from giving your everything to someone. And what a better way to give then to children. They are so grateful and excited and happy to receive anything. They are so quick to forgive and to forget. I can't count the times that I've yelled, stomped, and been angry at my children, and yet a few minutes later I'll find a small hand clasping onto mine and tiny lips whispering, "I love you Mommy." They are my anchor, holding me to reality. This life only last so long- I don't want to waste it worrying about myself. I would much rather use my time teaching, rocking, holding, kissing, cleaning, laughing with, playing with, and enjoying my children. Thank you, dear Lord, for the beautiful blessings of my children.
