Motherhood



Motherhood is stopping to smell even the smallest of flowers.  It's being there for your children even when you don't feel like it.  It's loving them unconditionally, and letting them love you unconditionally.  It's spending an hour filling up an ice chest full of water balloons just to see the happiness on their faces in the two minutes it takes for them to pop all those balloons.  It's dealing with teething, diaper changes, sickness, giggles, story time, afternoon naps,...  Motherhood is more work than anyone could ever imagine, but the joys and love that you experience in motherhood is also greater than anyone could ever imagine, or begin to explain.  I hope that my daughters will one day embrace motherhood as the gift from God that it truly is. 

Happy Mother's Day!  And, good luck to all the contestants in the We are THAT Family Happy Woman giveaway!

What a beautiful picture and lovely words, too. I just saw your comment over on my blog (about the lady bug, and it made me chuckle) and I had to stop by your site. It seems we have a lot in common with our children's ages, etc.

Thank you for stopping by my little corner of cyberspace. God bless you!

Love that picture, Cathy. It's like Rachel is saying "Yep, that's my mom and she loves me"
