Any time I take my kids somewhere I get this.
"Wow. Your hands are full!" or
"Are they all yours?" or
"Do you know how this happens?" or
"Are you done yet?" or
"Are you crazy?"
Yes, my hands are full. But so is my heart. I have 5 kids. 5. One whole handful. One amazing group of kids. I am thankful for every.single.one of them. Each of them is a blessing.
But you see-- my hands are full- but my heart is more full. My kids are so loving and so joyful (most of the time- everyone has their days). I cannot imagine life without all of them. They are my heart.
Yes. They are all mine--well kind of. And my husband's. And our families (family not being limited to relatives- family meaning everyone who we love and who loves us-- which is A LOT more than blood relatives), they are also G-d's children. He for some reason- that I may never understand fully blessed me with these 5 great kids- He entrusted them to me- I don't know why- but He did.
Yes. I know how it happens. I was a Biological Sciences major in college-- got this one down.
Meh. If it happens it happens. Truth be told- I was not expecting any of my kids. They were all amazing surprises and great blessings.
