Well, we knew we were lucky to be Julia, Mark, Micah, and Amelia's parents...but sometimes in the grind of it all we can forget that these sweet little pumpkins are a gift from God.
Sometimes I forget how badly I prayed to get pregnant with Julia.
And I forget how badly I wanted a son after I found out I was pregnant with Mark.
I forget how much I longed for a third child when we finally were surprised with Micah's pregnancy.
And I seem to forget how much I begged God for a sister for Julia, and another daughter for me because I missed ribbons, and ruffles, and shopping the pink aisle at Babies R Us.
God has given us 4 gifts, 4 blessings, and no matter how loud, and wild, and silly, they can be...we are thankful they were born.
This harvest seems extra full and extra happy this year.
