This year. This year wasn’t sad.
This year wasn’t filled with tears and pain and the bewilderment of my life having tipped over.
This year I chose to remember my daughter. Her birth. My sons. The blessing of their short lives. My unborn child. The hope he brings to us.
I’m so blessed to have this little family of mine. Who wants to shower me with love even though I’m a cranky, short tempered, half hearted mother and wife so often. I don’t deserve it. Yet here they are with me.
Thank you Lord that you gave me the chance to be a broken, desperate, human mama to 4 little ones and a wife to a man I can’t even begin to explain how proud I am of. Let them look back and see your grace through my mess.
