When I look at the images
that chronicle my life so far,
my heart full as I count
the blessings with ten fingers, toes.
Three strapping sons, two adorable nieces,
a new baby on the way
to add to this full list.
So, each day, I carefully count.
Each day, I call their names.
Grateful they are my glorious treasures.
Matthew, Andrew, Joshua, Alexandra, and Allison.
Awaiting a new niece or nephew,
witnessing the start of another family,
another already loved blessing to join
this giggle-ly, wiggly chorus of happiness;
the children of our blessed family.
