Thank you God!

Thursday, January 10, 2013

It's hard to believe that 43 years ago today I was on my way to becoming a mom for the first time. At about this time I was in a lot of pain, she was born at 1:12am. All I really remember is it hurt like crazy & they let you be in pain & then put you to sleep while you were having the baby. I remember they woke me up & told me I had a girl. Then since we had no insurance I was sent home the next day with no instruction on what a mom was to do. But I took one look at that beautiful little girl & knew that no body & I do mean no body would ever hurt my child, that I would do everything I could to love her, protect her & make sure she had everything she would ever need.

But who knew then that 43 years later she would given me three beautiful grandkids & then one of them went on to make me a great grandmother. I don't think I could have even begin to imagine what my life was go to be like from that point on. I still look at her & all I see sometimes is that precious little girl we made together. As I went over her pictures today (to post on facebook), I started crying & wondered how did I get so old - why didn't I stop & smell the flowers more often along the way? How did life pass me by so fast?

I may complain at times but in reality God has given me everything I ever asked for & I just don't take advantage of what he has given me. A great family, loving & very supportive husband, a roof over my head, friends, education, clothing, never wanting for food or really anything. I may not be rich in money but I'm rich in ever other way!

We are all in such a big hurry with our lives that we forget to thank God for everything he has given us. So at this moment I would like to say - "Thank You God for my wonderful life!"
