Very apt application of the proverb.

Take a look at the number of sentences you have that end with exclamation points. As a writer, do you want your punctuation to indicate your emotions--or your strong word choices? When you use exclamation points, you're telling your reader what to think...when it's far more effective to let them draw those conclusions because your words have led them there.

You were very blessed with those three precious babies.
Good read. I felt half the exclamation marks were unnecessary. Perhaps read through it again and think about it.

Funny how life doesn't work out quite the way we planned, isn't it? I was a little unclear at the beginning what you were having done. Keep writing and you will get to be better and better!

I don't know if this is a true story or not, but I really enjoyed it. I'm so glad that God blessed the woman in the story with three wonderful children. Thank you for sharing.
