Praise God for My Children!

I think I feel a possible magazine article coming. So I want to go light on this post. But I just have to share with you what's on my mind tonight, my dear blog readers.

I attended a social event today with a friend. When my friend asked me something about my kids, I didn't want the other lady who was sitting with us at the table to feel left out of the conversation. So I explained to her that one of my sons became blind six months ago. After discussing this, she asked me a question.

"If you had known about this gene, would you have given birth to your children?"

Did you get that the first time? "If you had known about this gene, would you have given birth to your children?" I still can't believe that I didn't stand up on my chair and shout it out for the whole world to hear when I answered,

"Absolutely!" There was more to this conversation but I'm not going to discuss it for now except to say that I told her they have a lot to contribute! Let me just add,

Praise God for each one of my wonderful, beautiful, content, faith-filled children!

Praise God from Whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above the heavenly host. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Thank you, ladies, for your votes of confidence about the writing. :)

I've got a 300-word intro, but I'm going to need some quiet creative time for the rest. :) Then I hope I can find somewhere to publish it.

Thank you, Alexandra, for your kind words.
