The love of a family is life's greatest blessing
It has been a great week here at my house and there is much I have to be thankful for.
DS#6 received the biopsy report from 2 lumps that were removed last week and thank the dear Lord, they tested negative. He has a past history with cancer so we were all awaiting the test results. Being cancer free is a cause for celebration and praise.
DS#3 and his wife became proud parents once again and have a new baby girl whom I'll be calling Belle here on my blog. Belle was born September 13th and is 7.5 lbs, and 21.5 inches long. What a blessing it is to welcome my 16th grandchild into the family!
With good news like that I am truly thankful this week.
My family keeps growing in leaps and bounds and what a blessing that they are to me.
In each family a story is playing itself out, and each family's story embodies its hope and despair
Our family is no different than any other large family. There are good times and bad ones too, but we do believe in celebrating the good ones to the fullest
Sometimes we tend to make light of our blessings and lament our deficits. Our families, the set of people with whom we live our lives are often ignored. We expect our family to understand without offering explanations of apologies.
Families are like oak trees. A few blows wouldn't bring the tree crashing down, but it would require a lot of healing and love to insure its stability. Our families need us as much as we need them.
When you talk to people and ask them what they value most, family is consistently ranked near the top. Every child is a gift. God is good all the time and He certainly blessed me with a wonderful family.
I hope this Thursday you'll join me in being THANKFUL. Count your blessings, name them one by one...
