I love being a mom.
I love hearing my boys say 'Mommy' (most of the time). I love the hugs, the kisses, the sweet arms around my neck, the laughs and even the tears.
I can't imagine my life without my children, I can't imagine me without my children. They are a completely true gift from God.
there are days,
when I feel like the least 'motherly' mom around.
Ever feel like that?
Days I'd like to go in the closet,
close the door,
and eat chocolate without having to share,
read a book without reading the same sentence over 50 times because of interruptions,
not having to repeat myself over and over and over....
I know in my heart that I would soon tire of that and miss
reading books together,
and sharing the love and conversation of two young children in my presence.
I want to cherish this moment in time and relish in the fact that each second I invest in my children will produce a harvest of joy that will last their whole lives (and mine).
My oldest son's birthday is tomorrow on Mother's Day, God couldn't have given me a more perfect gift.
Happy Mother's Day dear Moms!
p.s. Don't forget to treat yourself with a free coffee from Dutch Bros. tomorrow!!
