I read this today. It's exactly how I feel about children and what a miracles they are, even if they are little boys and not girls with all their cute little bows. If God gives me 4 children I'll feel so blessed but the world we live in will not consider me that way. I don't care. I'm letting go of America's ideals and standards of what a perfect family should look like and taking on the biblical perspective that they are a blessing. My children have taught me so many things like patience and humility and servanthood.
Yes my hands are full but they are full of good things and I hope some day and *gasp* some day in the not too far future to have them even more full. This is my reward.
