Personal Thoughts

What did I do to deserve this life?

“What did I do to deserve this day?”

That’s what I asked myself aloud earlier today.  I didn’t mean it in a good way though.

I was exhausted, exasperated, ready to throw in the towel.

Then, as soon as I said it, I thought about it again.

“What DID I do to deserve this day?”

Two children underfoot.

Mine all mine.

A little boy who I’ve been blessed enough to have for three whole years.

Mine all mine.

Even through the potty accidents, the drawing all over the walls, the tantrums.

He’s mine all mine.

A little girl who turned just one, who is a mama’s girl through and through.

Even through the crying, whining, no napping, and food on the floor.

She’s mine all mine.

They may both push me to my limits.  They may even bring me to tears sometimes.

But they are mine and that is more than I ever deserved.

“What did I do to deserve this day?”
