Thursday Thanks

Thursday, November 29, 2012

This morning I woke up with extra thanks.
I glanced over at my amazing husband in his slumber.  My eyes then went towards Alli’s monitor to check her digits for the morning and then to the clock.  6:00 a.m.  I relished in the fact that I still had 30 minutes to snuggle in tight.  As usual, Anna Claire and Ava had invaded our bed sometime in the middle of the night.  Do we really enjoy getting kicked throughout the night?  No, but one day they won’t sneak in and snuggle next to us.  So we take the beatings and the cuddles as they come.  While my 6 year olds legs were wrapped around mine and my 3 year olds fine hair brushed against my face I glanced again at Alli’s monitor, my only physical connection to her at that moment. 


I'm so incredibly blessed to have these lives in my life.  These precious gifts.  These precious moments.  The funny moments.  The good, the bad, the ugly.  The wonderful. 
As I walked into my office this morning, this picture flashed across the screen.  "Man,  I said out loud.  "I’m so blown away thankful for the God ordained opportunity to be your mother."    

thankful will never be enough!
