Thankful Thursday

Today on Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for my children.

While there are times I am in tears because I am overwhelmed with their energy and needs, there are also times when I am cry joyful tears because of the way they minister to my heart just when this tired mama needs it. Whether it’s words of wisdom or a hug out of the blue, God uses my children.

Five years ago I didn’t think we could have children. It had been four extremely long years, and I was spent. While I desired children, it seemed as though God had a different plan. And I was finally at peace with that plan. That doesn’t mean I liked it, though. But there was peace. We could have children, they just wouldn’t be our biological children. But our love for them would be the same.

And yet on that morning in June before I left for work, I got the surprise of a lifetime that changed my life for the better. My life is wild and chaotic, but honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I still remember the heartache I felt each month, the longing to hear running footsteps through my house, and babies keeping me up at night. And I pray for those who are going through the longing and aching because it’s hard.

So on this Thursday, I am thankful for the blessing of my children.

What are you thankful for today?
