Thankfulness... Day 5


Today I am thankful for our 27 new children. :) Thankful for the privilege of being here with them every day, for the blessing of sharing in their lives and for the lessons they have taught us already.

I used to think I knew a lot about faith, until I met them. We came here with the intention of making these children feel loved and help them to know how much they matter. I think what has blown me away the most is that that is exactly what they have done for me. Every day that I walk into the home and I am greeted with hugs and kisses and smiles and laughter.Every day they teach me how to trust a little bit more, love a little bit deeper and how to make the most of what I have been given. And it leaves me wondering how after all they have been through they could 'get it' so much better than I do?

I am so thankful for each one of these precious little souls. So thankful for the opportunity to love them and to watch them grow. So thankful for each smile, each hug and each day we have with them. We are truly blessed.
