Some Encouragement

I got this over e-mail today and loved the authentic message, so I thought it was blog worthy.

Though children are considered
To be a burden-some a tire,
God has placed within my heart
A feminine desire.

I want to be a mother,
Children hanging 'round my skirt,
With lots of clothes and runny nose,
Small faces lined with dirt.

Lots of laundry to be washed
And dishes not a few;
Do you think that I'm insane
Or that this could be true?

Small bodies to be washed
Tiny children to be dressing.
I think that children ought
To be thought again a BLESSING.
