Children are one of God's greatest blessings. Wouldn't you agree? So, why is it that when you have more than 1 or 2 kids there are people that look at you and treat you like you are some sort of diseased and helpless animal? BUT, if you have a closet full of designer clothes, drive nice new vehicles, or live in a big house filled with new "stuff" then you are something to be envied? It just completely blows my mind. This world is so screwed up.
I am so unbelievably blessed. I can not remember the last time I purchased an article of clothing with a designer label. I proudly drive around in my moldly, oldly expedition that has over 112, 000 miles on it. I've got a roof over my head and some furniture in my house to sit and sleep on. But most importantly I have a husband who loves me even though he REALLY knows me! I have a Mamaw, mom, 2 sisters, and a brother (and lots of great friends) that would do ANYTHING for me. I have 5 healthy, handsome, charming, loud, silly boys that call me momma. And to top all that off, God has decided to bless our family with another boy that I know will be just as wonderful and special as the 5 we already have.
That's what being blessed is all about. I'm not saying everybody should have more than 2 kids. All I am trying to say is: children ARE a blessing. If one or two is the right number for you, great. If you want to have 15....go for it. I just wish people would lose the mentality that those of us who decide to have more than 2 children are doing such a disservice to society and to ourselves. It is very hurtful and completely WRONG!My guys sitting on the steps at the state capital. (Ross, Grant, Rhett, Reid, & Garrett)
