To Be A Mother

To be a mother.....


To be a mother means you love unconditionally.

To be a mother means you get welcomed snuggles- morning, noon, and night.

To be a mother means you sacrifice daily- better yet, hourly.

To be a mother means having baby residue caked to your outfit.... and you leave it there!

To be a mother means you worry about every decision- no matter the size.

To be a mother means you are the planner, the organizer, the shopper, the feeder, the everything-er for your family.

To be a mother means you have a heart of gratitude.

To be a mother means you love so much it hurts.

To be a mother means you appreciate the little breaks into reality because sometimes you can only think of fairies, princesses, and babydolls! (unless you are a mama to the blue- and I know other things consume your mind!)

To be a mother means you are an example for little eyes all the time.

To be a mother means you have received a blessing that can never be taken for granted- not in the most sleep deprived night or in the midst of horrific temper tantrums.

To be a mother means you get homemade crafts from the most precious chubby little fingers the first Sunday in May that you will forever cherish.

To be a mother.... can't be put into words.

I hope everyone had an excellent Mother's Day!

And if you are a woman who isn't yet a mother but is waiting so patiently for God's perfect timing- you were in my prayers yesterday. I can't imagine your heartbreak. Your time is coming... continue to be strong and patient, what an excellent story you will have to share with your child someday!
