My richest blessings
After falling ill, this mom was blessed to have her 3 boys take care of her.
On Tuesday I became so ill that I ended up in hospital, I was not capable of walking on my own and felt dreadful.

When I came home my children were waiting with their faces full of concern, my wonderful husband helped me to bed and then had to get back to work and this is when I learnt how I have been Blessed.

My three boys took care of me - when I needed the bathroom my eldest (16-year-old) was their to assist me to walk, the twins (9) carted water every time I just mentioned that I was thirsty and the best of all - they were so quiet, not a single argument or a shouted MOM!!! Normally there is a disagreement between the lot!

My boys took care of me with love and concern, it filled my heart with gladness for this wonderful Gift that God had given me!
