Today I am thankful for:
They bring me, simultaneously, the greatest pain and the greatest blessings. I can't begin to imagine my life without them. Letting them go will be one of the hardest, most necessary, things I will ever have to do and I am so grateful that I don't have to do that, yet. I have learned more through my children, than they have learned through me. They all possess qualities that I am still struggling to obtain. Their whole lives are ahead of them and I can't wait to see what God has in store. And yet, I long to keep them young forever; where I can keep them safe from the dark corners of the world. Where a hug and kiss makes everything all better. Where their greatest disappointment is being the last one picked for kick-ball.
They will be grown soon and living their own lives, but for now I am cherishing every moment.
(Even the not so great I'm-a-stinky-rebellious-teenager-moments:)
I love you kiddo's........ more than you could possibly know!
