I Can Believe It
I have lots of people say to me, "Did you always want a big family?" My first thought is, "This is not that big of a family." And after that I must admit to myself that YES I have always wanted a big family.
Having 6 kids is SO me. I have never known how to do things without REALLY doing them. When I was in college I really liked being a waitress (although I think the term is "server" now). So I got 3 jobs at one time...being a waitress.
I like being busy. I like having things to do. I realize that the creation of these children is not MY doing all alone. God is the one Who makes the final call on all things living. He knows me well. He created me to be the mom of these children and the ones that are still with Him.
When I look at pictures of our family I do sometimes think.."I can't believe they are all mine!" When I was working at Chuck Wagon , Congo Craig s and Hurricanes in Gainesville FL I probably could have never guessed that this was going to be my future. I would have been the girl to say.."Are all those kids yours?" I may have even said it with a sour face...
But right now knowing me, knowing the personality God gave me, being blessed beyond belief to have been matched with such a perfect guy I can believe it..all of it!!
