I have written about this topic before, but I feel the need to revisit it because of a question that I get asked a lot. That question is (you probably guessed from the title), "Are they all yours?" I give a proud smile and answer, "yes they are". I also get asked if they are all boys and I respond with my proud smile that yes they are. From that point I get a range of comments from, "Oh! bless your heart!" to "You have your hands full!" to "how do you do it?" I also get comments that I am a doing good job. I love the reassurance from people in the community because let's face it, our society has strayed from uplifting each other. I wear a proud smile when I get looks and comments.
My favorite is comment "you have your hands full". A friend recently posted about how she gets the same comment and her response was that yes her hands are full but so is her heart. I agree 110% with that response. My four boys are all mine and while my hands may be bursting at the seams, my heart is even more full. My boys are a blessing. I am proud to be their mommy.
Back to the question I get asked a lot. I am raising boys that will become men and follow the example that Rob is setting for them to be a godly man. My boys belong to me here on Earth, but they truly belong to God. God has blessed me to be their mommy. Some days, I am not sure why God chose me to be their mommy, but I am so thankful that He did. There will be day when I will have to share them with their future wives. When I get asked the question if my boys are mine, I answer that yes they are, but in my head I'm reminding myself they belong to God and that one day I will have share them.
I am a proud mommy of all boys. I love my boys so much. They all have a different personality that brings so much joy to our family. My heart overflows everyday with how much I love them. My boys remind me how important it is to have faith, hope, and love.
