But most of all, being a mom is what I know God created me and called me to do. I know it with every fiber of my being. I cannot imagine my life any differently. I am so grateful everyday for the blessing of being a mom. And I know God has uniquely gifted me for it.
My mom is amazing and I am so thankful for her friendship. My mother-in-law is a blessing because I know that godly kids don't raise themselves. It's not an accident my husband is the godly man who I adore. Here's what I also know: Moms are superheroes. Moms can do anything. Dads would be lost without us. Here is an excerpt from an article that I read recently that I have found to be sooooooooooo true in my life!
"Fathers receive adulation like this all the time. If David has more than one of our children under his care for more than three minutes, people line up to tell him what an incredible father he is, even if I'm only in the restroom. Mothers, never. It's considered to be, merely, our job."
And so, because I love it and because it's hard and often unnoticed (unless you're a dad! ha!), I am thankful for mother's day- a whole day to celebrate moms! Heck yeah!
My mother's day was wonderful- Jack made breakfast, took me out to lunch and made dinner. He even cleaned the kitchen and told me to lay on the couch with my feet up! We played outside and the boys took sweet pictures with me. It was so nice to just sit and enjoy my boys, to be pampered and served. I felt very loved and very appreciated.
Here's to all the mothers out there! Treasure the little things, love your role, rest in Jesus, and know that you are a superhero!
Blessed So Much I Can't See Straight
