I stood stony for a time with this word I just could not write--- Reward life has countless rewards there is not enough MB in memory to hold them all. How in the world do I dare start to write? I guess go for the big one, the biggest reward the Lord has given to me, my family they are the very air I breathe.

When I wake up in the morning to see their eyes--there is not any other feeling in the world that gives me such a joyful feeling. To hear my six year--old say, Mommy I love you—about 20+ – times a day. What bigger reward could any person ask too be blessed with?

My children have given me immense rewards over the years, the first time you hear them say Mommy, the first time they gaze at the fire- works going off, the first time they make a hundred on their spelling test, the first time they flirt with a new friend.

The everyday rewards mean the most to me. When I am old, and time is no more, these rewards will mean the most, my precious memories. The Lord gave us a colossal heart to hold our greatest rewards. Blessed with time these rewards will be never ending and never forgotten.

good reminders that the greatest rewards aren't those big moments but the every day existence we take for granted.

Children are God's richest gifts. When you get your reward from having them in your life, you are truly blessed, as you are. Blessings.

Judy, this is such a good reminder of what is important. Our children and the 'precious memories' they give us are an amazing reward. God Bless You!
