The greatest blessings!
It doesn't generally take much for me to be grateful for my family, pretty much anything I see of think about makes me thank the Lord for my husband and boys. Yesterday's scare has made me think a lot. During the incident it was more of a silly baby eating everything, but everyone's reactions has made me realize just how blessed we are. Blessed that I looked over and noticed, whether it was a whispering from the Holy Ghost, or mothers intuition I am so thankful that I choose that moment to look over and notice he had something in his mouth. If I hadn't have known what was in there how easily would it have been brushed off as just another thing that beautiful boy shoved into his mouth. Who knows what damage could have ensued, even the death. I am now slightly terrified to let him wander the house, with all my craft supplies and projects that I do every where. I think vacuuming may become my new hobby, with a vaccume that is industrial quality. You never know when its someone's time, there are so many out there who have to go through the ultimate pain something I pray every day I will never have to endure. Any other test to face but that one. When I read things like this I am SO thankful for every moment I have with my children, and so thankful to God that he choose the hubs and I to raise these AMAZING children. This life can be so full of fear and sadness and I am so thankful for every happy moment I have with these beautiful children and this beautiful man. I can't imagine a day where I didn't get to kiss these beautiful lips and feel the soft skin of my baby. I love every moment of nursing him, I love how he cuddles up to me and how he curls himself up like he did when he was in the womb. I am so thankful for this beautiful little child and that he is OK!!!!
