I copied this list from proverbs14verse1.blogspot.com/
I can sure relate to the part about a large family providing many opportunities for building patience. So true!!!
-Accept donations of restaurant-size cookware!!!
-are CHAOTIC and NOISY and FUN
-have no matching socks...but 58 white non- mates
-always have someone to play with... never bored or lonely
-lots of babysitters, readers, and rockers
-never have a dull meal
-are never picky eaters! there's someone to eat it!!!
-have an ever ready sports team
-never have moldy leftovers (ha!)
-and yes the parents DO know what causes them...
-and no, moms are not supermoms or super organized
-do not have overabundance of patience, just lots of opportunities to cultivate patience!

Large families are a blessing in so many ways and children are a joy to raise. Money might be tighter but the riches of having a large family are priceless!
