Today, these are the traits each child has that I am the most thankful for.
Faith: her compassion and her unbelievable energy.
Abby: her calm grace and her amazing artistic creativity.
Bede: his unique developmental timetable and his unvarnished WYSIWYG love.
Gilbert: his inquisitiveness and his goofy sense of humor.
Trixie: her desire to share her world and her ridiculous bullheadedness.
Gloria: her utter love for siblings and her wee smallness.
Ask me next year they may be different! I love you kids!
