I have lots to write about since moving to Japan last month, including thoughts and reviews, but I wanted to leave you with some words that came from my 6 (7 in June) year old son the other day:
"Mom, children are a blessing.... and parents are a blessing to children!"
He said this with a H U G E smile on his face. I'm so thrilled that he knows that he, his sister and all of his brothers are a blessing to their mom and dad, but I was taken back by his sweet addition that we are a blessing to him. Might we all live to be worthy of the accolades of our children. I hope to forever be called a blessing to him as we walk this path back home together.
Make sure all your little ones (and not so little ones) get extra hugs, kisses, and I love you's today and everyday. As one of my favorite songs called Find Your Wings by Mark Harris says, "it's only for a moment you are mine to hold, the plans that Heaven has for you will all too soon unfold." Let's make those moments even more precious! There's no room for anger or impatience in parenthood, we have the perfect example in our Heavenly Father, let's recommit to that example today! There's always more room for additional love and understand for our children and for all those we come in contact with while on our earthly journey.
Love to you all!
