Those were the words I heard yesterday at the chiropractor's office about me having three children. My reply was, "Hey, it is fun." Ok, it is not always fun being a mom with three little ones, but I would not want my life to be any different. I cannot imagine how life would be without my three gifts. "Gifts?" you say. Yes, gifts. That is what the Bible calls them. Well, those are not the exact words. The passage that comes my mind is Psalm 127:3-5:
Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his REWARD.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them.
I love my three children, and I want to have a lot more (if the Lord wills). So many people cannot wait for their children to go up because they so much work when they are little. I look back on different stages of my children's lives and often wish they could stay little. They say the cutest things, they love to cuddle, and their energy for life is amazing. I look forward to each stage of their growing up, and I cannot wait to see what they will grow up to be.
Here are my three blessings!!
Don't know if this all makes sense, but it has been burning on my heart ever since I heard those words. I could say those back to the person that said them, but it would be that I do not envy their view of children!
