I love being a Mom. It is seriously the hardest and most gut-wrenching job I have ever had, but I feel so blessed to have three healthy children.
About ten years ago or so, Mike and I thought we would not be able to have children. But thankfully my God is bigger than any little ovary issue and we have been blessed with three precious babes. I am so thankful for my big boys and my little girl.
Parenting this angel is certainly not an easy task but I am so thankful for him. Often my "hands are full" with my three babes, but I would rather have a big armful of children than empty arms. I remember that feeling ten years ago when I thought my arms would never cradle babies, but 11 years and three babies later, I am honored when people tell me that my hands are full. Yes indeed they are, and I would not have it any other way.
My eldest babe has taught me how to be a mother. With him I learned that amazing feeling of unconditional love. He taught me that I can do anything with only a few hours of sleep and to trust my instincts. My second babe has taught me lots and lots of different life lessons that I am still learning today. I am so thankful that because of Dave I see the world much differently and that I am a better person because he is in my life. My youngest babe has reminded me to enjoy every single second because it goes by so fast. With her I am appreciating every single moment because I now see how fast time does fly. My girl has also taught me all things girly and because of her I now know all my princesses:)
These three angels coupled with their Daddy make me a very, very happy and blessed woman.
On this Mother's Day I am thankful that indeed my hands are full. I know so many that would love to hear the word "Mommy" and I praise God everyday for the reminder of his grace in my life.
So today on Mother's Day I praise God for allowing me the opportunity to raise three children to honor Him.
