Mom of Four

As a little girl my dream was to be a Mom...a Momma of lots of babies.  As a teenager, I found out that I had a hormonal tumor that would make that dream seem  unable to acheive. I began to fret and fear about the future, how could something that I wanted so bad be taken from me before I even had the chance to begin seeking it.  I remember clearly God speaking to me..."my child the desires I have placed in your heart, will be fulfilled."
I remember thinking, okay I can handle this, I don't how my babies will get to me but God has promised they will come.
Not too many years later, I sat in a room at UVa and found out that tumor wasn't there...only a cavity remaining where it once was.  I remember the Dr. who had been part of my medical battle - years of surguries, tests, appointments and he just shook his head and said "I have no other thing to say, but it's gone and it's a miracle!"  To God be the Glory, great things He hath done.
Now, many years later my quiver is full.  I have four children from kindergarten to high school.  My cup is full, no my cup is overflowing.
Some days, it's all that I imagined....brushing hair into ponytails, sisters laughing themselves to sleep, a dirty boy from playing hard outside...other days (alot of days), it is harder than I ever imagined...children fighting, clothes not clean, dirty faces....but on all days I am so thankful for these gifts that were given to me.

I remember all of that! And I share your story with almost everyone I know! It is a miracle that you are a mom and that mean old tumor disappeared! I know Who took it away and the same One Who blessed you with those precious children. I often think of your story and remember that God can make a way where there seems to be no way. I love you and am so happy you have been so wonderfully blessed. I appreciate your willingness to share your amazing story!
