Marveling (A Random Thought)


Marveling today upon my family's dynamics: Took my 14 year old and my 4 year old for check-ups at the doctor today (shout-out to the BEST pediatrician ever!); yep a teen and a tot, 10 years between them, born the same month, 9 calendar days apart. Meanwhile, 4 of my other kids were invited to sit in an empty patient room nearby, where they watched a movie while they waited. . . because we can't all fit in one room as a family anymore. (Baby was with me, in case you're doing the math!)
This after we parked our 15-passenger sized van in a spot that would make it easy for me to back out without being blocked in (may or may not have happened before--lol!), and easy for us to open our doors if someone parked next to us. . . which means I pass rows and rows of empty spaces in the parking garage, because our van won't fit in those tiny, skinny spaces.
Sixteen years ago, as I was putting the final touches on my wedding planning and dreaming of the life I would have with my sweet Husband, I never thought this would be my narrative. Never knew the label "Mom of Many" or "Large Family" even existed.
Never thought we would be blessed so greatly. . .the ebb, the flow, the responsibility, the hard work, the training, the exhaustion, the love, the stages, the hilarious moments, the tears, the patience, the teaching, the sweetness, the tenderness, the lessons, the sanctification, the understanding, the depth of togetherness--of family, of oneness in marriage. . . so grateful to God for it all.
Love. Marriage. Family. Gift from on High.
