But you know what? For all its hardships, being a parent is worth it.
Especially when you get little love notes like this:
("I love you Momma, I love you as much as a lion loves his cubs"--Elliott, age 6)
I happened upon this love note left for me and my heart felt like it might burst. It feels like that now as I look it over again. I love my little munchkins and I am so thankful for them! I learn so much about our Creator through my relationship with my kids and I know I've grown a lot as a person as well. But sometimes its just a simple, selfish enjoyment. I love these little notes! I love having these two little people around me who love me so unquestioning. And plus, they're just so darn cute!
"Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
The fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children of one's youth.
Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate."
