If you asked me a ten years ago would I be a mom my answer more than likely would have been no; my life was a disaster, and my heart was not what it is today. God changed my heart in so many ways the day I surrendered my life to Him.
When my daughter was placed in my arms for the first time I can’t begin to explain the way my heart felt…I knew I would never be the same. Two miscarriages and two baby boys later here I am, up to my eyeballs in motherhood.
I have had one of those weeks that would challange any mama whether you have one child or twenty; and then with Mother’s day this weekend I can’t help but be reminded of this thought …
God knew what He was doing when He made me a mom.
I found this quote and it made me smile because it speaks to motherhood. Things get crazy, messy and out of control some days. Some nights your up all night catching throw up from one or more of your children, dealing with nightmares, or not getting sleep. Most days you are rocking babies, drying tears, cooking meals, being a chauffer around town, being a referee, a cheerleader, and then some. At times the day leaves you overwhelmed or crying. Motherhood is the hardest job.
Even with all of that I am thankful for each one of those things because I get to do them for my children. I get to be their mother. God made no mistake when He gave me each of my children, even the ones He has brought my way who I didn’t give birth to but are still very much mine. God gave me a Mother’s heart, a heart full of love, with plenty of room.
As I’m writing this I am nursing a sweet sick baby and I’m reminded its not always glamorous but it is always worth it.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you sweet Mom’s out there…keep pressing on and thanking God! God made no mistake when He made you a mother!
