The child named after an angel turned 4 today. He's the one God gave me because he knows better than me, the one that defied man made contraceptives and herbal Emmenagogues to come into our family.
I read so many eloquent blogs and wish I could describe how blessed I feel to have the four beautiful children God gave me. However he did not give me the gift to put my thoughts into words. Simply they make each day worth getting up for, they make me proud though I don't deserve it, they make me feel loved unconditionally, they make me consider my every action, smile for the simple things and want to grow old for.

So sweet. The world of children is magic and instructive and motherhood is a high,high calling. Great post, Gillybean!

Our god's gifts share the same day! Mine just turned two. Blessed and stressed is the best way to descibe my relationship with my cherub! He is so adorable and sweet but some days I just wanna hug him just a bit too tight *gritted teeth* for a moments sanity! A glass of wine and cheers to you on this blessed day. lol

I think you undervalue your writing skills Gill. You write beautifully, inlcuding in this post.

I hope you all have a lovely day together.
