Yes….there are a lot of kids. I’m aware. I counted them.

It’s not a handful; it’s a heart full.

It’s not a burden; it’s a blessing.

It’s not a field trip; it’s a family.

It was no accident; it was a choice.

Feeding them doesn’t break the bank; it takes budgeting.

It’s not chaos; it’s joy lived out loud.

It’s not for everyone; but it is everything to me.

It’s not a misery; it’s my ministry.

I know how many I came in with; you don’t have to count them out loud for me.

God is not laughing at me; God is rejoicing with my laughter.

  1. You are beautiful my friend. Your openness to love and take on all of these very lucky children tells a multitude about who you are. I am so very lucky to know you. I’m even luckier to have you as a friend. This is absolutely beautiful. You are right. It’s not a handful. It’s a heart full.

  2. I love this!! Thanks for the smile today. 🙂

  3. Beautifully said…I generally just want to trip them…

  4. Love this “God is not laughing at me; God is rejoicing with my laughter.”
    You may need to put this whole post on an index card and hand it out to the idiots – sucks.

  5. I’m SO hanging this on the fridge! Love it!

  6. I know how many I came in with; you don’t have to count them out loud for me.

    So true. I have nine kids… When they were young this really bugged me.

Most importantly...what did you think? Do you have questions and concerns or request for a certain post?
