I mean, how many boys can grow up with their very own, built-in, basketball team.
We always had our girl name picked out.....just in case. But deep down, I think I knew that I was meant to be the mom of a lot of boys.
They are protective of me, in a way that only a boy can be with his mom....even now, as young as they are. That special bond between a mom and her son is undeniable.
By the time I was due with our 5th, I thought it funny that some were still anxious to see what it was going to be. Had they not figured it out by then?
God obviously had a big plan for us. A plan that was far beyond anything we ever imagined 15 years ago....
....entrusting us with His children. Knowing that we could bring them up to be Godly men.
What an honor, when you look at it that way. He trusted us with the lives and souls of His boys.
It is an honor I feel blessed to have been given. I will do my best every day to make Him proud and reassured in His decision.
How could I not.....I mean, just look at those faces.
