So Blessed

I just had to write about my two sweet kids. One of my friends has hanging in her house something along the lines of "these are the children God has given me and I am blessed." I know I have butchered it but you get the idea. I love that because it is so wonderful to think that God created these children, yes for his purpose, but for Scott and I to enjoy and to raise. I wonder at times why he thinks I am capable of doing this, but I do know I am not alone in doing it. God says he will never leave you or forsake you and I believe that stands true even with raising our kids. He chose Ryan and McKenzie just for us. WOW!! He has confidence in me that I can raise these two kids as I should. It is lots of pressure, but I am so glad I have the opportunity to try.
