Thankful Thursday

Today, I am soooo very thankful for nap time. I don't know what it is but I have 3 very grumpy kids today. Amaya doesn't even take a nap anymore but you better believe she got one today. Even though they are grumpy we are still truly blessed to have them.

Sometimes I wonder if it is harder for people who got pregnant really easy or got pregnant not even trying to. Don't get me wrong I have my days I want to pull my hair out. As I was listening to them fuss and cry this morning though I kept thinking about how it really wasn't that long ago that I cried everyday for 4 years because I didn't have little fussy kiddos.
Last night Chris had a meeting at church and all 3 kiddos got in my lap and we just all snuggled for about an hour. In that hour I can't even begin to tell you how many kisses and hugs I got. I am so thankful God finally filled our home with so many smiles. I can't wait to see if God blesses us with even more smiling faces someday.

so sweet! is kinda hard to believe you that they are grumpy when they just look so peaceful and content - angelic really! LOL! :) I am right there with you about weighing the blessing of what God has done and is doing in our family against the day to day struggles of mommyhood. God is good to give us soooo much to cherish and daily reminders of His love for us in the smiles of our children!

TOO CUTE! And I love the blog look!

I too, cried many a tear. NOW I cry with joy when my girls say our little nighttime ritual to me or each other. It makes my heart BEAM!

Thanks for sharing your kiddos!

The new blog look is amazing! You are so savvy! It's hard to believe that those sleeping angels could ever give you a bit of trouble! :) My boys have been a bit grumpy, too....must be a full moon! Thank God that everything looks much better after a little nap. :)

What a sweet post!! The journey to fill a home with precious treasures makes even the grumpy times a time of thankfulness doesn't it? I can so relate!!

Your sleeping babies are angelic!
Love, Linn xo
