As my kids where sleeping last night I was in tears praying. My kids and I have been through tough times. My kids and I were physically abused and emotionally hurt by someone that was supposed to have taken care of us. I can’t bring back the past but I won’t allow it to poison our future. Many negative things and past hurts have come and sometimes I asked God why?
But one thing still remained I have a reason to be thankful of. God gave me two lovely kids, my parents and my “quiet angel”. Having them in my life gives me a reason to wake up each morning to move on and be strong.
I am a single parent now and I admit it is not easy. But seeing my kids inspires me to move on and I will always be proud to be their mom.I remember one time when I had heart pains and would feel so weak my 3-year-old son would get my medicine and my 6-year-old daughter would give me water.
Last night I had heart pains again and my daughter woke up and she immediately hugged and cried. My daughter asked and prayed to God to heal me and she asked God not to get me from them because they loved me so much. I was in tears when I heard her pray. She was holding my hand and saying how much she and her younger brother loves me!
It made me realize that yes, I have been unfortunate to some things but I have still many things to be thankful of. I learned to look through my “eyes of faith” and start seeing myself as happy, healthy and still valuable. Even if my situation looks bleak, I know “God is in control, I know He will give the best for us and restore everything.”
To my parents, two kids and my “quiet angel” I want you to know that I am holding to my life because I have a reason to live and that is because of my love to all of you. I Love You So Much and I’ll always be here loving you :)
