Feeling Blessed

Baby Andrei 11months
Today has been an especially blessed day. I may sound annoying. I've heard comments that we have an annoying perfect little family, but the truth is we don't. We have a family of every day normal individuals that fit perfectly together. We get mad at each other, we disagree on so many levels, on so many things. But what makes us "annoying" is that we have learned to take bad and turn it into goodness, exaggerated goodness. Today for example was a crazy day at church trying to get the kids to be reverent and avoid the obnoxious stares. But today I stopped and thought. Adrian's 7 months, Andrei is 3. They are doing great for their age! Natalia has always been an abnormally reverent person. I know I need to persevere in teaching them many things but after sacrament meeting I thought I have so much to be happy for. The kids with their loud voices and excited whispers are so happy. Isn't that the thread that sows our childhoods? Happiness. Exuberant, unrestrained happiness. Well today I give thanks because amid turmoil and hardship, happiness and hope keep us going strong.
