Easter Blessings

Tonight after I put together the kids Easter baskets… I sat on the couch and started thinking how blessed I am.  I reflected on my past… my present… my future.

My past is simply that – my past… there are things that I have said and done in my past that I wish I had never said or done.  However, there are things in my past that I would not trade for anything.  The day I said “I do” to the most wonderful man in the world.  The day I found out I was pregnant with my first son, Will.  The day that I first held my first son.  The day that I found out I was pregnant with my second son, Carter.  The day that I first held my second son.  I remember dreaming and praying for happiness.  I asked God to forgive me for all of my sins. All I ever wanted was to be happy and true.   He gave me my dreams – He answered my prayers….

My present is filled with such happiness.  My husband and my children are all I have ever wanted.  The good Lord has bestowed upon me such blessings.  I am forever in His debt and forever grateful.  Yes, we have our struggles… Yes, we have shed tears… YET – the  struggles and the tears have helped us become better people and better parents.

I see my future still being full of love and happiness.  I know this doesn’t mean there will not be bumps in the road… but as long as we have each other to share the future with… that is all we need.  I see changes happening for us – good changes.  I see Will growing into a wonderful, caring, handsome, loving and intelligent man.  I see Carter overcoming his autism and becoming an advocate for others who have no voice.  I see Todd and I growing old together.  I see us reflecting on the family we made together… I see us proud… I see us humbled… I see us…

“God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life”

I thank God for another Easter… to celebrate Jesus and His Sacrifice…  I thank God for our  blessings… big and small…  I thank Him…

I am Blessed…

Thank you, God… Thank you….
