The sweetest things in life, aren't things......

Sweet Dreams

I feel overwhelmed when I think about my children. 
Not overwhelmed, like I can't handle them, but overwhelmed that they are mine. That the Lord has entrusted me with me. I love that, although they are getting older, each one still enjoys to cuddle. They let me still hug and kiss them! 
(o.k. maybe tolerate me )

I enjoy their laughter, their tears, their unique personalities, and the way they do things.  I also enjoy going in their rooms every night, while they are sleeping, to stroke my hand through their hair and whisper in their ears how much I love them!
Even though they are sleeping and maybe can't hear me, I do it anyways.
I love watching them each sleep for a few minutes. 
In those quiet, still moments I am completely overwhelmed with God's love for me and them!
He has to love me so much to entrust me with these four beautiful children!
I love that they are all mine! 
That I get to be their mother!
I feel overwhelmingly blessed!

How could you not marvel at 4 such beautiful children! They are perfect. I feel the same way when I look at mine. Of course, sometimes I'm overwhelmed in the other sense too!! :D
