Today I’m covering two days of Thankfulness because well I missed yesterday! I am thankful that each day I am able to raise myself out of my bed and love on my children. I am thankful for their sweet little souls that God has entrusted to me. I’m thankful to be able to recieve and give sweet kisses to my babies everyday. They are truly gifts from the Lord above.
I’m also thankful that I am able to stay at home with them every day and have them home with me. I often see other Mothers send their children off to stay with someone else, stating that they want their children to enjoy being with so-in-so or that they “need a break”. Yes, we all need a break sometimes but God gave these children to us, as parents to raise, not to the community. I’m thankful that I have the opportunity to raise the children God has entrusted me with, to raise them up in His name and His glory. I pray one day when they are grown they will do the same with their children. I know this is God’s plan for me. I bask in the glory of His love when I take up this cross of childrearing and do my best to succeed. These days that they are young, I know I cannot get back and I will not give away these moments and memories to anyone else. They are mine, and my children’s to hold in our hearts forever, just as God cherishes each moment with us. I’m thankful that He has blessed me so.
