This past holiday weekend, I had the opportunity to simply observe and think. How many times a day do my children yell M....O....M? How many times do I get frustrated at hearing it? How many times do I welcome it?

God has answered my prayers . . . the prayers I have said over and over for children. God Blessed me, giving me children . . . children that were in HIS ultimate plan just for me and my hubs. God knew there would be wonderful days and days that I could barely manage to get through. God is there to see us through.

The Thanksgiving Holiday is a time to reflect . . . a time to give thanks . . . a time to appreciate those God has surrounded you with.

I am a MOM . . . A MOM to FIVE Children . . . GOD GIVEN children of whom I am Blessed . . . and they call me MOM. Being a Mom is the hardest, but most rewarding thing I will ever do.

How true! I have to add another occupation in the list: DJ. At this time of year the kids constantly ask for Christmas songs from 5 different CDs!
