Mothers Day

And what a wonderful day it was.
When your children are all under the age of 7 and daddy works in a church, there is not breakfast in bed (I don't like crumbs in my bed anyway!). But there was lunch in a restaurant, homemade cards, sweet kisses and hugs, a husband who didn't have to go back into work, a nap, a great dinner and lots of lounging around.
A sweet day indeed.

I love being a mom. It is the hardest thing I have EVER done, but I do love it. There is nothing else I'd want to do right now. I'm not "putting my dreams on hold" in order to raise my babies. These are my dreams. I feel like I'm doing exactly what God created me to do. Someday there will be time for other things, but I will always be a mom.

(And just to keep things real, I wrote this after putting 3 kids to bed, 1 crying for daddy, 1 crying because he couldn't stay up later and 1 asking a million question about tomorrow. There's a mountain of laundry to fold, dirty floors, a baby to nurse, bathe and put back to sleep. Whew. I am WAY underpaid, but I still wouldn't want to be doing anything else...except for maybe sit on the couch and eat ice cream {grin}.)
