FFF-“Beautiful Gifts”

This weeks’ theme for FFF is an easy one!  Of course the most beautiful gifts I have ever been blessed to receive were FIVE precious gifts from God!!

There was a time in my life when I battled cancer and was told that I might not be able to have children due to the side effects of some of the very potent chemo drugs I was given.  When you are fighting for your life, your priorities are survival.  Once I won the battle with cancer and met and married my husband, it wasn’t long before I realized that I could still have children! Can you imagine my shock and gratitude?!

Each of my children is a blessing in their own ways.  It was also such an awesome experience for our entire family once we made the decision to adopt.  Our children had all been praying for a little brother and Peter is just the light of our lives…the icing on the cake!

To see more FFF photos, go to Hannah’s blog. Have a wonderful weekend!

what a great idea using the frame. I think most everyone who has children is so thankful but it gives you a whole new outlook on how lucky when you actually have them and see just how lucky YOU are.
