It is amazing how big of a mess tiny bodies can make. I usually clean up the family room every night before bed. Last night I didn’t… but then as I wake up and study my scriptures and ponder for awhile, I can’t help but LOVE seeing so many toys and books and things that are for children!!
For 5 years we ached for a little one to be part of our family! We had a crib, changing table, and blankets, but the baby room and house was empty… apparently there was a different plan for us than we had visioned. We wanted to have lots of children of our own… but God was preparing us to accept a different plan when we got a phone call that there was a baby that needed a home, and a week later our home changed forever!!
Sometimes we can be frustrated with the messes…. but really if we pause, we can be so grateful that those messes exist!!
