The six of us

"It is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us." -anon

My family is my blessing, and my biggest, most important job in this life. My husband, who adores me and comes home from work to more work here at home, and my kids, who are growing up before my eyes and are just begging for my attention and love every day. They all bring me so much joy. Spending time as a family makes me so happy. I just feel complete and like all is well with the world. It's just the way it's supposed to be, and my heart recognizes that. These people are my world, and I have been tasked by my heavenly Father to raise them, teach them, care for them, and bring them to Him. I am to be a reflection of Him for them to see, not with my words but with my actions, and I take it so seriously. These little souls depend on Bogdan and me for everything, and just thinking about the enormity of that can be too much sometimes, and I get scared and anxious. But if a little fear pushes me in the right direction, all's well.

It does seem overwhelming at times, and whenever I have anxious moments of "I just don't know if I can do this right" I try to remember something I heard in a sermon--that it shows lack of faith and trust in God to say that He gave us these kids but then to be anxious as if we are now on our own to raise them. He who entrusted them to us also provides exactly what we need to raise them for His kingdom if we trust in Him!
