Today I woke up an hour late. I rushed downstairs, grabbed my coffee and Bible in hopes of a few quiet moments before the troops arose. As you can guess with in one minute of sitting down, the first sip of coffee in, my Bible opened I hear, “MOM, MOM.” My heart a bit discouraged goes up to get the first of the waking clan. Then down come the fourteen year old, followed by the 6 year old, followed by the 8 year old. So much for coffee and my Bible! I looked at my husband all snuggled up on the couch with the boys, my daughter sharing her dreams of the night, and the baby snuggled in my arms. We all sat with each other and chatted and laughed! Wow, that what a touch from heaven. This morning superseded my expectations. A day filled with a heart full of thanks for all that God has given me in an amazing family! His plans are always better than ours!
