Happy Mother’s Day to all you ladies who are influenced by a Mother. I shared a little on Family Search Blog about what my mom means to me and today I’m focusing on ME.
I am so lucky that these littles call me Mommy! Even though motherhood is the most difficult job I’ve ever had, there are times of joy unequaled in anything else in life.
These kiddos teach me balance, organization, patience and the meaning of true joy. They make life sweet. They bless me with kisses and snuggles and hero worship. It’s the best.
But, being a mother isn’t all sweetness all the time. They are always at my side; whether that’s in the kitchen, my bed, or the bathroom. I sometimes get mad or grumpy. I yell. I hide in my closet. I drink diet coke. I also go on vacation without my littles just to be by myself.
Then, at the end of the day, I scroll through my phone and stumble across the hundreds of selfies my kids took while commandeering my phone and I smile. I laugh. My heart swells with gratitude that they are so forgiving of me and my shortcomings. They want to be with me because they love ME.
They call me the “Best Mom in the Whole Wide World” and sometimes I just have to agree!
