So blessed

I am so blessed. I am the mom to two beautiful boys. Two boys I thought I'd never get to have. Five years ago I never though I'd be sitting here with one beautiful child, let alone two. I'm still amazed. I look at my two boys and am shocked that I am a mother, that these boys came from me and belong to me. I now say "children" instead of "child" and "sons" instead of "son." We are a family of four now. Wow!

Words cannot even begin to express how grateful I am to have these children, to be a mom. Each night I drop to my knees and thank my Heavenly Father for these blessings. I now know what they mean when they say your posterity brings you joy because I feel it each day when I am with my sons. Each smile, each laugh, each age, each stage. It all brings me joy. I am blesses, so very blessed.

That made me cry. Children are truly such a blessing, and sometimes I get too caught up in the chaos to remember to be so grateful for the sweet little ones God has entrusted me with. Thanks for sharing your post!

I remember the first day that hit me when I had my 2 girls. We were on a trip to see family, and the two of them were in the backseat sleeping.... I looked at them and was overwhelmed with the same thoughts: Children, instead of child, daughters instead of daughter, Family of 4. Now as a family of 7.... I find those days bring longing to my mind for simpler days. :P
I wouldn't trade what I have, but miss that moment of elation.
