Thankful For My Girls

I'm thankful to be a mom.

We struggled with infertility for ten years until the Lord healed us and sent us three beautiful healthy daughters.  (Not all at once!)

I got just what I prayed for:  I always wanted three children and I wanted them to be girls

I see now what a blessing I was given to have healthy children.  We never had issues with colic or chronic ear infections.  None of the girls ever had to have tubes put in their ears nor have tonsils or adenoids removed.

We rarely were at the doctor's office unless it was for well-child check-ups.

I often hear of parents with children with terminal illnesses.  My heart goes out to them, and I pray for healing and that God gives them strength.

Every day, I can give God praise for healthy children.

What a great blessing! My children are healthy, too, and for that I am thankful. We had a rough start with our youngest, but her breathing problems seem to have corrected themselves. Having healthy children IS something to be very thankful for!

Your daughters are very beautiful. Praise God that they were and are healthy. May God always protect them and guide them.

Much Love!
