All My Men Have Been Good to Me – Sons

God has blessed us with four sons.  Sometimes I can hardly believe this. And I can hardly count the joys. But I will try.

  1. They have played with each other for their whole lives. They truly care about each other.
  2. They are careful to honor their mother. It is such a blessing.
  3. They all have applied themselves diligently in school. They have made good names for themselves with teachers and employers. They are known for hard work.
  4. The guys at church like them, enjoy teasing them, and they can hold their own when it happens.
  5. They bring me things—amazing rocks, wonderful feathers, gifts, songs, gadgets, cards, books—I lose track, but they seem to enjoy bringing me things.
  6. They ask me for advice. Not often, but on important occasions.
  7. They call me and write me.
  8. They remember what I have taught them. When they forget, just a look, a touch, can remind them.
  9. They have given me three incredible daughters-in-law.
  10. Those who have children have taught their children to love me.

This list could go on, but ten is a good place to stop. To summarize, my sons have been good to me.
