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.


  1. Beautifully said. Only a mom can understand the love and joy kids can bring, and how sad it would be without them. thanks for being my kid! xoxoxo

  2. I am grateful for a house, kids with semi decent manners, and when my house is clean for the hour or two a day that it stays that way before my kids wake up. :)

    What in the world are you watching!?!?
