Paul is the greatest blessing that has ever graced my life. He has given me more than I have ever appreciated him for. He brought so much goodness to a twenty-something girl that thought she may never get to realize the dreams of a family. From the day we first met to where I am today, he has only increased the good in all aspects of my life. Thank you Paul if you're reading this for blessing my life so immensely. I am indebted to you for everything.
I realize I am living my dream as a mother. I have always wanted children (pretty much since I was a child myself) and am so grateful to be raising these precious little souls. They are a each a dream come true in my life and I am thankful for every day I wake up with them and each moment I spend with them. They're so precious. I don't ever want to take this priceless thing called motherhood for granted. We mothers are so lucky to experience it. Every day.
I am so grateful to have my own set of loving parents, 7 siblings with their spouses and children, a living grandmother and grandparents I knew loved me, uncles, aunts, in-laws, cousins..... I am lucky to have family all around me. So many people I realize are without their families and I can only imagine how empty that must feel at times. I take this blessing for granted too often. What a blessing extended family is.
What are you grateful for every day? What's coming tomorrow that makes you excited just to wake up? I know that at night I am so thankful to have a bed and all the comforts that make us such an opulent and spoiled nation.....
