Raising children is not easy. It is not quick. It is inconvenient. It can have its difficult days.
But I wouldn't trade any of it for life without our girls. We put a lot of work into instructing them, loving them, playing with them, giving them new experiences, helping them figure out this huge world, disciplining them, praying with them, reading to them, and nurturing their spiritual lives. All of that takes a lot of time, patience, and flexibility, but I'll take all that inconvenience for being able to ENJOY my children. They are such a blessing to us!
