I am Grateful

I am Grateful

I am grateful for the privilege of saying yes today. 

I am grateful for unbuckling two wide-eyed kids out of their car seats from the back of a government vehicle and being able to whisper to them “I’m glad you’re here”. 

I am grateful for the hours spent with a head on my shoulder. 

I am grateful for bouncing on the trampoline and squeals of delight. 

I am grateful that my daughter, who sat for an hour on the couch with a precious one, has awareness and compassion that can’t be taught by books alone. 

I am grateful that a relative stepped forward to say “Yes” and a dedicated DHS worker came and picked up the kids after dinner tonight, after just a half day in my home. 

I am grateful for the privilege to swing wide my front door and usher in vulnerable children who for the moment - or for the duration - need to be offered love, safety and security. 

I am grateful for the privilege of putting faith into action. 

I am grateful for the privilege of being a foster parent.
