I’m so thankful that I’m a mom. There were so many years when all I could do was long to have children of my own. Then, finally, I had my daughter and then my son. In the years since I have to admit that I haven’t always been as thankful for my children as I should be. I let little annoyances and irritations get in the way of truly focusing on the gift that I’ve been given.
