Not So Wordless Wednesday

Ok so my plan was to post these pictures as a Wordless Wednesday post, but I have plenty of words that go with them, which makes this a not so wordless Wednesday!







Thank God for Kids!!!





































I used to wonder, and even ask God, why He only gave me one child. It used to break my heart as well, as many of you already know.




Now I know that He gave me sooo many kids to love, just in ways that I didn't expect and, in fact once upon a time, even want. It took years for my heart to change and accept what His will was for our lives. Just a few years ago I even came to the point in my life that I changed my prayer from "please give us another baby" to "if this isn't Your will, please change my heart." And that's exactly what He did.



I'm very blessed to have my miracle baby, for that's what Heather is. And I'm blessed again with so many friends and a church family who all share their children with me in ways I never dreamed possible. No, they aren't "my" kids, but I sure do love each and every one of them, even the ones I ran out of room to post here!


To each of my kids: you have each blessed me in ways you will never know and I'm truly thankful for each and every one of you.





And Carley, no matter how far away you now live, you'll still always be one of "my kids!"

Thank you so much for everything you have ever done for me. You used to take care of me all the time, and you were so comforting! I was glad to call you my mom!
Love always,
Carley
