It's enough...

Last week, we took our first real family vacation--to Disney world!! We didn't know what to expect, taking a 20 month old, but we had so much fun. One of the best parts was that we got to spend a whole entire week with Daddy! 

As we spent the week basking in the warm sun, riding rides, seeing the Mouse himself, and eating good food, I thought about something quite a bit--the number "3".  I've been pretty down this winter and spring about the fact that there are only 3 of us, that we still have only one child. We've talked about having several children. In fact, we want God to bless us with the children He wants us to have. Of course, I have plenty of time to have more children, but at the moment, it's obvious that Kade is it for right now. 

Anyways, I've been mulling over this for the first part of the year, but last week, when I looked over at my son, sleeping soundly in his daddy's arms, it hit me--he's enough. If I never have another child (and I believe that I will, but if I don't) our family of 3 will be enough for me. We told God that it was up to Him, and sometimes, that may mean 1 or 2 children and sometimes, maybe it means 20. Who knows? We may end up being the family with 20 children (haha--kind of). Whatever our family looks like in the future, it will be enough for me. 

In the meantime, I'm enjoying just the 3 of us--and all the adventures we're having.
