...isn't that exactly like motherhood?!
So many times I feel as though what I do as a mother is so
insignificant ... unimportant
just a drop in the ocean....
but I much more easily forget the second part
...the part that reminds me that this little drop called
motherhood is as vast as it is small...
a small portion of these little one's lives....
that help mold something much greater...
a heart of love
Maybe Mother Theresa wasn't specifically talking about mothers when she said this...but I absolutely think it applies....
and applies well.
Yesterday was Mother's Day of course...and it was so awesome to hear my little ones saying "Happy Mother's Day" to me, but for a while I sat and thought about it all...am I the mother that my children can rise up and call blessed? Am I nurturing my "drop in the ocean" as best as I can? I want to...so very badly.
So I found that yesterday was not only a happy occasion for me, but also a humbling one...that helped remind me just how much being a mother is a gift.
I have, admittedly, let myself buy into the stigma that staying at home with my children isn't that important...that it is insignificant.
But it isn't.
...and I don't care how many jobs I have in the future...in my lifetime.
The one I have now has and will always be the most important.
I am so thankful for yesterday.
I am so thankful and blessed with this little family of mine.
Thankful for reminders and encouragement.
I am thankful to know so many of you....mothers and soon to be mothers too.
We are a strange and wonderful group.
What a crazy ride it is.
I intend to enjoy it.
I hope all of you ladies had wonderful days yesterday! You all are so very special!
My boys brought me breakfast in bed....painted me a very special art piece that I love so much...
and even treated me to lunch...
how did I get so lucky?
I love these guys so very, very much!
Hope you are all had a fantastic Monday!!!
