30 Days of Counting My Blessings – Day 3 My Kids

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?
