Yesterday Cory and I took our little family to church with his parents in West Jordan. It seems these days that anywhere we go we have to brace ourselves for little comments on our family. Things like "my your children are so close together, are you crazy?", "Gee you must be exhausted", and my all time favorite "Haven't you figured out how this happens?" It always makes me just a little upset but we try not to let it show. We simply smile and say that they are great kids and that we love them very much. So as we walked into church yesterday I was bracing myself for the typical comments and thinking about what my response would be. We had no sooner then sat in our bench then Brother Williams sat behind us and asked us how old they were. We told him 3, 2, and almost one and I braced myself for the comment that would surely come. But he totally suprised me, his response was "Wow...you two are really blessed!"
What a sweet man! It is so true. Our kids are so darn great! They have wonderful personalities and they play well with eachother and everyone else for that matter. Our whiney days are few and far between and we just love them all so much. We had not planned on them being as close as they are, but we wouldn't change it for anything. We just recently found out that I'll need surgery that will definatley be ending our family and I could not imagine how sad it would be not to have little Jax as part of our family. So long story short, I second Brother Williams statement, WE ARE BLESSED!!!
