Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

I love laundry, dishes and cleaning the house

For the last five days I have had this major issue with my back that has kept me from doing anything I normally do. Picking up children, sometimes walking, standing up, sitting down, cleaning, laundry, dishes, driving, etc. etc. etc.... When I can walk I do it at a snails pace and all hunched over... it's a real pretty sight! =(

It has been a really hard five days and it has really made my grateful for the ability to do those tasks when I am not feeling this way. I take for granted how easy it is to do laundry or dishes or keep the house straight. I get overwhelmed by those tasks some days but on days like the ones lately when I can't do them, I realize how blessed I am to have those chores to do and to be able to do them. I'm thankful for the wonderful people in my family I get to do them for and I'm looking forward to feeling better and getting my well oiled machine of a house functioning again! =)

BTW, my amazing husband has been a major help to me... as well as my mom and mother-in-law! Thanks to each of you!

What a precious response to life's trials. BTW Ben is so cute - I have a soft spot in my heart for little boys with some flesh on them. :)
Take care of your back!!! You'll need it later on.
I'll be praying for you. May the Lord bless you and keep you.
