Counting My Blessings

This past week has been a week of blessings. I just haven't been able to ignore them.

#1 - I am finally starting to feel 99.9% myself {12 weeks later...} and with this renewed sense of physical well-being I have felt much more motivated to get things done {laundry, dishes, organizing, you name it}.

#2 - For almost two weeks now, I've been able to feel the first little flutters of the baby everyday, multiple times per day. I've never felt movement this consistent this early, so I know Heavenly Father is blessing me with yet another sense of well-being.

#3 - I have been blessed to realize again how much I love being a mom and have had some sweet moments with the kids. I'm starting to feel more like a "mom" and less like a young girl taking a shot at raising some little kids.

#4 - I have felt more motivated to prepare and plan more activities with the kids and get out of our lazy summer slum {of watching movies all the time, for example}.

#5 - This evening, for whatever reason, I received profound revelation that because I have been blessed with two {soon to be three} beautiful children, I will be given the capabilities to take care of them and fulfill any need that they have. I need not ever feel afraid or unable to take care of them. Heavenly Father wouldn't put have them in my care if I couldn't take care of them {which he makes possible}.

Sure love these kiddos.

Thanks for sharing! We too hit a summer slum with lots of movies and I don't even have the excuse of being pregnant!!
