Since becoming parents, there are many things we cherish and are thankful for! Here’s a short list of things we don’t take for granted!
God- Our Father in Heaven has everything to do with all of our blessings. He has always had a plan for us, and we are just getting the first glimpses of what he has in store for us. It is amazing every day to get a little bit closer to him and realize he has more trust and faith in the two of us than we ever imagined.
Family and Friends- Our Family and Friends have made our transition to parenthood so soft and easy. They have been here every step of the way offering advice, love, support and comfort. We are incredibly blessed to have them in our lives, and the babies are lucky to have so much love surrounding them!
Sleep-Never again will i take for granted a solid nights sleep. The first year alone shaved years off our lives, I’m sure of it. Knowing what it takes to raise 4 infants, now toddlers, we realize just how important a good nights rest is!
Health-How incredibly blessed we have been to be able to take 4 infants from the NICU and have them flourish like they have. Never in a million years did we or the doctors imagine they would be doing as well as they are now. Modern medicine is a true blessing, and another testament that God exists.
Quality Time With Each Other- We have made it a goal to at least have one night a week when we take some times for ourselves. This has not only given us mental stability among the chaos, but strengthened our marriage. The bond we share has grown, and by strengthening our marriage, we’ve become better parents.
A Warm Bath- No justification needed.
A Helping Hand- For a couple that felt uncomfortable asking for help all their lives, it sure has been a blessing not having to make that leap. So many people, friend and family, neighbors, church members, and complete strangers have shown us a compassion we will never forget. There are truly good people in the world, and they ask nothing in return. We are truly humbled to have met so many of these people. They have changed our lives.
Words of Comfort-Starting at ground zero and wondering if we are capable of being the parents these girls need, it sure has been a relief to have so many people instill confidence in us and let us know that they have faith in our ability to raise these miracles. So many of you have touched our hearts with your words, i don’t think you’ll ever truly know the affect you’ve had. We are forever grateful.
Our Family Business-In the beginning, we were a wreck trying to figure out my work schedule and who was going to be with Ashley day and night when i was away. What a comfort and blessing it has been to be able to be here every step of the way with Ashley. I have not missed one thing with the girls, and i am in debt to my Father in Heaven for this incredible blessing he has given me. I don’t know how everything fell into place, but it did, and i will never take that for granted. Thank you to all of you for your incredible support in this endeavor!
