learning.

What I am learning.

I am learning that my children are forgiving to a Mommy that is not perfect.
I am learning that my husband REALLY loves me.
I am learning that all the things in the world are really not important.
I am learning that my home is the most important place to be.
I am learning that I am very important in my home.
I am learning that I am truly blessed.
I am learning that God does work all things out for the good of those who love Him.
I am learning that one of the most sacred relationships I will ever have is with my husband.
I am learning that I can still encourage someone else even when I am feeling extremely discouraged.
I am learning that I still want to have more children.
I am learning that one day my womb will no longer be fruitful.
I am learning that sometimes others look at me as an example.
I am learning that even though I can't, He can.
I am learning that one day my future grandchildren will either thank me for or question me about how I raised their parent.
I am learning that hurt can go very deep.
I am learning to love more.
I am learning that no matter what the enemy tries to whisper in my ear, had I been given the choice, this is the life I would have chosen for myself.
I am learning.

You are OH SO RIGHT...your kids will forgive you for almost anything as long as they KNOW that whatever it is you are doing is with their long term welfare in mind...and with LOVE.

What absolutely BEAUTIFUL and charming children you have. I can see such personality and happiness on their faces.
