Today we welcome Cami Checketts to our blog with something she treasures....
As I've been pondering the question of what I treasure I thought of all the standard answers - my husband, my four crazy, adorable boys, my testimony of the Savior, a healthy body, a warm home (even if it is a bit messy), but I wanted to just share a few thoughts today about why I treasure my boys so much.
My husband and I struggled with infertility and I can't tell you how I cried each month when we discovered that yet again our hopes and dreams of having a baby were empty. When the miracle occurred and I was finally expecting my first baby I think our Father in Heaven probably tired of hearing my gratitude. I was so thrilled. With each of our boys we've gone through years of treatments and heartache that I'm sure some of you can relate to. All four of our boys are miraculous to us. We feel so amazed that we would be entrusted with these precious souls.
I wish I could claim that I was a stellar mother, but I'm a disorganized, impatient mess a good portion of the time. Thankfully, they love me and spoil me rotten. The big guys (6'3" and 5'10" currently) pick me up and call me their little cookie Momma, they're very protective and sweet with me. The little guys snuggle and kiss me until I'm certain to catch every cold or flu bug their school has to offer. I love it.
I hope this post wasn't too personal, but I felt prompted to share some of my joy with my children. Please comment and share about the little (or big) people in your life who you treasure.
