As a parent, I am so grateful to be blessed with the gift of a child. I have come to realized that being grateful for my child is about me, but the responsibility of having a child is about the gift given to me by a higher power. At times I don’t understand why I have been blessed with this child, because I have known of situations where a child has been taken before their time or a parent has not even had an opportunity to shape the life of their child. I have realized that I am too small to understand this. So what I have to do is the best I can under the circumstances that the universe has blessed me with.
