Our Christmas Eve...
As I sit and watch the slide show of my precious family, I am reminded that God is totally in control of our lives. Twenty nine years ago as I was struggling with infertility and not being about to conceive, I could never have imagined the goodness that He had in store. No my life is not totally perfect in every way, but the blessings are HUGE! Six children I could not love more. They are beautiful, handsome and so darn cute. We have our normal ups and downs but they love so much!
As I watched the slide show I can read in all their faces how much love they have for Annabel. I could not ask more of my children in anyway.
My parents, sister and brother I am sure thought I was crazy when I was determined to raise another baby so late in life. I know that each one guarded their hearts so none would hurt when she passed early like we were told. But I am sure, this Christmas of the love and acceptance in all their faces. How Annabel loves them all.
I love my mom and dad so much for giving me the gift of love! I am so grateful for my sister and brother and their families.
As I count my blessing of my family, I also count them of my friends that are close and some that are so far away. Some I have met and other I have never met but feel I know so much! I continue to thank you for all the prayers offered up on Annabel's behalf, in her sickness and her health. Merry Christmas to all!
