Join us for Gratituesday at Heavenly Homemakers!

I know this sounds cliche, but after spending the last few days in near constant prayer and contemplation over the Hanley family and their loss, I am grateful for my kids.

I have heard of families who have lost children in the past, but something about this story has struck a chord with me. I feel like God has buried the Hanley family in my heart and I literally cannot stop praying for and thinking about them. I'm grateful for this, because it has heightened my sense of gratitude for my kids and all the joy and chaos and laughter and even the trouble they bring to my life.

I'm grateful that I get to be Leslea, Owain, Alese, Judah and Westyn's mom.

  1. It is easy to take for granted what is right in front of us. I don't think it is is ever cliche to be grateful for our children or families. It is a blessing we have them.
