Motherhood






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.

And yet,
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,
or
read a book without reading the same sentence over 50 times because of interruptions,
or
not having to repeat myself over and over and over....
BUT,
I know in my heart that I would soon tire of that and miss
sharing chocolate,
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!

Lisa ;-)

p.s. Don't forget to treat yourself with a free coffee from Dutch Bros. tomorrow!!

That is a lovely Mother's day present. You have one yourself.
I do think it is one of the best gifts in the world, to have been given the gift of mothering.

Happy Mother's Day, Lisa. How fun to have a birthday and Mother's day to celebrate together!! My mom was born on May 9 and sometimes it fell on Mother's Day.
