Seventeen!

Anaath enters a new chapter in his life and we all celebrate! That tiny little bundle is today a big fellow!

The previous night Cindy was craving for me to cook chicken,  she ate her hearts desire and it was so filling that the next 30 minutes were spent walking up and down our drive as she was heavy with chicken and our child! It was a happy evening and not long into the night the first signs were felt, her water bag! The hospital bag was packed so we just drove happily to the hospital and on Sunday morning our beautiful gift arrived,  he was too sleepy, how hard the doc pinched him to make that first cry,  it was a blessed Sunday morning!

The years have progressed in a beautiful manner, Anaath moves into his final year at school and suddenly it seems to be just a memory, where have all those childhood years gone!

We look with joy and thankfulness,  he was gifted to us, we have a God ordained responsibility as parents and we know that this prize is something we cherish and enjoy everyday!

Praise the Lord , my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord , my soul, and forget not all his benefits— Pslam.103.1-2

As parents it’s never a dull moment. Stress levels can go very high and all the hard physical work the mom pours is not easy but we have learnt to trust only in Him for guidance and direction,  there are times that we just don’t know what to do but He knows best and waiting on Him has been key!

As a family we celebrate everyday, it’s a gift and we cherish every moment! Today we give thanks that we have a new day with new life, new dreams, new opportunities and new promises!

Happy Birthday Anaath, may the Lord bless you and keep you,  may His light shine upon you and give you peace! We are blessed and we just thank and praise God!
