Why Do I Love My Children?

Why do I love my children?  Let me count the reasons....

~~They love to change my cell phone ringer so I never know it is MY phone ringing!

~~My bed, walls, and carpet have all been painted with permanent marker.

~~They ALWAYS have something good to say about my cooking.  I NEVER hear the words yuck, nasty, disgusting, or my favorite...sick and wrong!!

~~I never know how many people I'm going to wake up with in the morning.

~~I get kisses from runny nosed children.  Seriously, what are you going to do?

~~I get quite an education (most of the time humbling!) every day.  Like when I asked why did Jesus have to die and the answer I got was "because he's taking all the mean stuff out of our hearts"!  

~~I find the decor of our house changed. Like this.......

Or this.....

~~ I get to hear the funniest things each day.  Our 3 year old keeps calling our pastor a pirate because he forgets the word pastor.  He also keeps calling the angel on top of our tree a witch for the same reason!!

But the best reason is.....

I get to hear "I Love You, Mommy!"  What else can I ask for in life?


"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God"
1 Corinthians 10:31
