Blessed Despite My Failings

It wasn’t so long ago
I lost my heart to a man I didn’t know
Now I’m heading home
With five little ones in tow

Now I’ve hit my fifties
What a relief
Looking back on the years gone by
Life has not been all that kind, I cannot lie

But the little ones have grown
And have little one’s of their own
With guidance from above 
We have overcome, with His love

In hindsight I would have changed a few things
But yet I have and will be, blessed despite my failings.

    What a wonderful and touching poem on a retrospective past. Yes, indeed we make mistakes, and there is not one of us that is perfect, but His forgiveness and love prevails-- pure Grace :)
