You have heard the saying..
"Children are a gift from God."
Think about it.
God.... giving US the HONOR of raising an ETERNAL soul.
Not just a human.
but a spirit.
An eternal soul that we are in charge of.
We help direct.
Livia is 3 weeks tomorrow.
We are smitten with her.
Her eyes are just like her brothers...
Deep. DRAWING YOU IN....
Just like their daddy's. ;)
Many people talk DOWN about having boys.
I've heard negative comments from many.
Here is my statement to those that say these things.
. . . . . .
"Why are you not up for the challenge?"
"What makes you scared?"
Little boys are a treasure.
Tristan has brought such JOY to my heart.
Zach and I call him... "OUR JOY"
He is always thinking about the next step.
Yes. He is FULL of energy.
. . . . .
I tell Zach... "I think Tristan MAKES me have energy....he is always pushing me along the way."
He is a beautiful son to have.
I'm so blessed that GOD TRUSTED ME
to raise a YOUNG MAN
I am just finishing the book...

. . . .
It's been EYE OPENING.
(NEXT UP: Bringing up Girls. )

That is certain.
