Continuing with my 30 days of blessings brings me to day 2!
Day 3. What am I thankful for?
My kids bring out the best in me (and sometimes the worst). Even when they are pushing my buttons (and trust me, they are very good at this), I still love them. I even tell them that I love them, I just don’t love what they are doing.
I read about parents who would give just 5 more minutes with a child they have lost. I truly can not fathom what that must feel like and pray to God I never do. I try to remember that even when things are not going well here, someone has it worse. Someone else has lost a child.
I try to savor every day as much as I can as I know they will grow up far to quickly. I don’t wish any days away (although am grateful for bed time once in a while). I try to take in each day and find something amazing that they have done. I try to soak them up as much as I can.
Thank you God for my children, they show me what unconditional love truly is.
What are you thankful for?
