Children are Blessings

This weekend we celebrated our little one's 2nd birthday.
I can't believe she is 2 already!!

Last year she wasn't so interested in the whole cake thing. She screamed and screamed during the whole song and didn't want to get her hands dirty at all. I don't think she even took a bite of the cake. She was not happy again until she was back to sitting in the chair her grandparents gave her.

This year, however, she really enjoyed being the center of attention except when being sung to. She was a little overwhelmed with that, but otherwise she loved it!! She ate some of her cupcake and cookie and is really liking the whole idea of 'pesents'. She has something to get today, but after that I think she will be seriously not happy that they don't happen to come to her every day.

In the busyness of getting ready for parties I was reminded of what a blessing children are and that she is our little gift from God. Children are definitely a great responsibility, but such a joy! I love watching her discover new things. God is so gracious to give us these little blessings to raise for His glory. Yes, it gets overwhelming at times and is a great responsibility, but it is so much fun!! Babies are very cute, but it is a lot more fun when you can interact and do things with them. I am loving getting to know this little person with a very big personality.

"Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward." Psalm 127:3
