Blessings

Last night as I read with Caroline and Tucker (for almost an hour!), I realized that I needed to do another post of the good things that are going on right now. Needless to say, reading with the kids is at the top of the list. Sometimes we just need a reminder of all the blessings that surround us. Here goes...

*Reading with the kids! This was especially good because Tucker sat with us on the bed the entire time. Caroline even took a turn telling stories.
*Listening to Tucker sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and not missing a single word
*Watching the kids play together and with their friends...we've come a long way!
*Having the opportunity to go to Spiritual Direction and feeling like an adult
*Holding little babies at PMO and being thankful that we survived those tough months with little sleep
*Watching Caroline show so much interest in what's going on in the kitchen...She always wants to help us cook, no matter how difficult the recipe.
*Hearing Tucker in the morning say "Mommy, I need you" from his crib, knowing the day will come when he doesn't need me (or at least won't admit it)
*Waking up to no children in our bed and knowing that Caroline stayed in her bed all night (talk about a blessing!)


I could go on and on and on, but I'll stop there. Thanks for reading...
