I am convinced that Psalm 127:3-5 is true. "Children are a treasure from the Lord, like sharp arrows in the hands of a warrior, happy is the man whose quiver is full." ( my five arrows are pictured above)
After twenty one years of marriage, and five children, I am continually thankful for the blessing of God in my life. With each passing year, and each passing event, it becomes less about me, and more about Him. At my age(which shall remain a mystery)my siblings are alive, and healthy, as well as my elderly mother and mother in law. All of this is a testament to the graciousness of a good God. Even, if I did not have the joy of a wonderful husband,children,siblings,inlaws etc., by definition of Who God is, He would still be good. It is all about Him and very little about me.
