Start Each Day....

Start each day with a grateful heart

and end it with a prayer of thanks.

In the middle though, it's always nice to......

throw in a few M & M's ;)
(and you thought candle holders were just for candles, didn't you?)
Happy Valentines Day everyone!

♥ Hands ♥

The were married for years and couldn't have children, It was at a time when couples 
didn't choose "not to", and their hearts and arms ached for a baby of their own.
After quite a few years of marriage, they adopted a son 
and were thrilled to finally become parents. 

Looking to adopt again a few years later, they were surprised to find
that she was pregnant, after so many years of waiting. 
She gave birth to a daughter. 
They always said that there were two ways to get children, 
and they were doubly blessed to get one each way.

Having nearly given up on having a family at one time, 
they are now parents to 2 children, grandparents to 10,
and great-grandparents to 5. When you count in-laws, etc.,
their number swells to 35, and growing :)  

God's ways are not our ways, but His plans are always
so much better.

I am blessed beyond measure to call them......
Dad and Mom :)

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31

Have a wonderful Sunday!
