Being a mother was supposed to be natural and easy.
but it wasn’t for me
Being a mother was supposed to be pure joy.
But it hasn’t been for me.
Being a mother was supposed to be what I was made for.
Being a mother was supposed to “make me understand” what my mom said all those times when she was worried or happy or proud or scared or just overwhelmed.
And it has.
Being a mother has made me believe in things I thought only happened to other people…
I now understand that simple line in the Christmas story that reads,
“But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19)
Being a mother has taught me what I already know: time is so very temporary.
And I need to treasure each moment.
Happy Mother’s Day.
Thank you to Cort and Eddie for making my Mother’s Day so special.
Tomorrow I will continue my blogging tips series, but I needed to share my heart today.
