Neglected daughter: you don’t have to inflict the same apathy on your kids that pummeled your youth; God will give you, through the mercy of His Son and the presence of His Counselor, a compelling love for your husband and children that no waters on earth can quench. Gary Thomas
I am so grateful that God is in my life. He brings forth healing, and grace, and forgiveness. And I am so grateful that I can give Baby Girl a different background, a different childhood. One that she can be proud of; one where she can turn around and say what a happy childhood she had, even though she’s an only child.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Hubby made some farmhouse chunky fudge for a cake sale we’re having today to raise funds for the E.P. Children’s Home. Isn’t he just a rock star?
- For Baby Girl being so excited to use her new gum guard, and shin pads, for hockey. Yes, she is six. Can’t believe how quickly this child is growing.
- For a delicious dinner last night.
- For my beautiful home.
- For my family – my extended family – only they can bring fun back to dysfunctional in a unique, entertaining and ultimately frustrating way.
I have so much to be grateful for.
