Benefits to Raising Boys

It's amazing to think that God gave me 3 boys.  At first I was hoping for a little girl and some days I wish I would of had a little girl. But the more I go through life
 the more I thank God for the boys he gave me. I truely believe God gives you only what you can handle and for some reason I know God knew without a doubt that I was meant to have boys.
 And, it's so amazing that they all love me at the end of each trying day.
No matter how rough and tiring each day may bring,
 the benefits to raising my boys is such an awesome blessing!
 I was trying to find some pictures to post today and as I was browsing through them, I stopped and thanked God for the peace and quiet that I had while trying to get this posted.
Raising boys is a very challenging and a rewarding task.  Some days seem like they never end. While other days just fly past.  Each one of them protects the youngest and they all fight about each others things.  But I know at the end of each day as we wind down and get tucked in to bed, they thank God for each other and pray that the Lord protects each one and keeps them all safe.
When my middle son Noah prays he has such a sweetness about him, he always puts a smile on my face and that is enough for me to know that I have done my job for the day. 
The Lord always gives me the strength to complete my daily tasks.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6

For the Lord gives wisdom, from His mouth knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 2:6

Always speak blessings and give praise to your children! They are so worth it!

Much Love,
