As I sit here, spending the last few hours of my day in solitude, catching up on Army Wives and drinking a coconut cream pie shake, I am overwhelmingly humbled. So completely humbled by the fact that God chose me...me to be the earthly mom of my sweet babies. He hand picked me. Inspite of the fact that I fail Him daily, and don't deserve it, he trusted me to be their mom.
I feel like I need an enternity to let that sink in. I'm not sure I'll ever really wrap my mind around it. It is so comforting to know I serve a God who isn't petty, and doesn't hold grudges. I serve a God who blesses me daily and forgives me constantly so that I can be made new. I serve a God whose mercies are new every.single.day.
Isn't that comforting as a mom?
I feel even more humbled knowing there are women, some I even know personally, that are struggling with infertility. I can only pray that they can find comfort in the God of Hope, the God of Peace.
I can't imagine life without my girls. Sure, it's not all rainbows and butterflies. I mean, come on, I've got a toddler and a tween. For anyone who says having kids 10 years apart is easier...I've got news:
It's not :)
But it's life and they are mine, at least for this short period of time while we are here on this earth. And I am forever changed by them.
Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's, especially mine :)!
