God is Good

Have you ever been just happily content?
Nothing has changed dramatically in my life. There was no windfall of money. My husband still has the job I am not crazy about. I am just happy to be me, content with my life. The Lord has been good to me. I love the holiday season. I especially love Thanksgiving...a day to give THANKS. I am so thankful for my life.
Over the weekend, Mr. R was home, and were able to attend the church picnic as a family. We were sitting on the bench together eating burgers, and talking about having more children. This is a BIG DEAL. My heart tells me I want more children. My brain and my wallet tell me how foolish this can be, especially being the mother of an autistic child. I teasingly said to Mr. R, "I can go back to school, get a career, and get a tummy tuck." (hey, I had three 8 lb children in three years, cut a girl some slack, she needs a tummy tuck!) But my darling Mr. R said, "Those are rewards of the world, I'd rather invest in eternal rewards. I'd rather you be home with our children and have more children with you." Did I not marry the best guy ever? I even said back "Can you live with the tummy pooch?" and he said, "Of course I can, you got the pooch carrying our children!" Wow do I love him.
