Usually I try not to be too deep, but this is something that has been on my mind for a while. Several people have raised questions lately.
"Am I being unfair to my other kids by adopting Francesca and Victoria?"
"How will I be able to give them all enough attention?"
Well, it's true, I probably won't ever be able to give enough attention to them. I try, and I don't know about other people's kids, but my children seem want constant attention all day long, especially when I am on the phone, so that's kind of an impossible goal anyway. Also, I want my children to learn that life is not all about them; that life is about making a difference and helping others.
There may be times where they are bored waiting in a doctor's office. They may not be able to attend tumbling classes every week or have all the cool fancy clothes. They may have to be patient and learn to wait. If I am busy with one child, they will have to learn to help each other sometimes. I don't think this is a bad thing.
When you set about to do something important, it's not going to be easy.
If you don't ever set out to something that's difficult, then how can you learn to be strong and overcome things?
These are things you can't learn from having tons of expensive toys.
Some people, ok, lots of people, may think differently than me, and that's ok with me, but I have to do what I think is right. I can't live my life to please others.
I want my children to know how much I love them everyday, and I think they know that, even when I mess things up sometimes!!
So, ok, enough of the heavy stuff. Here's some random cuteness.
Bowls like colors of the Ukrainian flag!
