I am touched by God's faithfulness. This path was not one I had envisioned for myself and I needed Him to help me. And He did. I asked Him to allow His love to flow through me to them. And He did. I asked Him to help me love them as my own flesh and blood. And He did, and I so do. I asked Him to bless us with a child to complete our family. And He did. You have never seen a child adore her older siblings the way she loves them. I thank Him for the role-models He gave me in my own mama, granny, and other mama (we don't like the word 'step' around here). I thank Him for His word he gave us to instruct us in raising them
Family is my heartbeat. I love being with them. They make me laugh, think, and challenge me to be better. I love when the house is filled with all of them.
So this mother's day like so many other days, I will thank Him profusely for allowing me and choosing me to be a part of their lives. Even though the time is so short. Two of them are now parents, and I won't even get started on how I love being a grandparent. I have already been given the greatest Mother's day gift. Them. They made me a mother.
Thank you Lord that your plans prevail. They are so much better than our own.
