Anna’s Story Part 61
Everything was different this week. I don’t want to say I love my kids more now. But before last week, I loved them because I had to – because they are my kids. Really I guess I have to be honest here and say I needed my kids to love me because no one else did. But they are only babies and never really filled the hole I had inside. I always wanted them to make me feel loved and they didn’t. They just needed me all the time and they hardly ever made me feel special. Now things have switched around. Now I am loved by God and I am special and I am a princess and I am somebody. I see my kids differently. They need me the same way I need God. I need to pour love into them no matter what. They are a gift not a burden. They are a gift from God who loves each of us. I think I heard that before, but it never really sunk in. Now I get it. I am loved so I am free to love. I want to shout it out. I want to tell everyone. I want to dance. I want to sing. I want to praise God. I am happy. Happy!
