Thankful for my kids

Today is parent teacher conferences for both my kids. An hour a part, during dinner time, at two different schools. My almost 7 year old is teasing his sister and she is having a melt down b/c she's tired and hungry - she got up at 4am for no reason and we should have eaten 20 minutes ago. I just gave up the hopes of making a real dinner and gave them cereal.

In the midst of it though, I'm glad they're here and I'm glad that they typically are happy, fed, rested, not rushed, and not grumpy. But even when they are, I'm glad God chose to bless me with them. They are my greatest treasures besides Christ.
