i have been blessed with the world's best mother. i know you think you have the best one, but, i assure you that you have been mistaken. (is that little rude of me?)
i praise the Lord for my mom who has shown me, since i was a little girl, just what a Godly wife and mother looked like. who showed me what it meant to sacrifice for your children, what it meant to show grace, and what it meant to love with no boundaries.
as a mother now i am nodding my head that she was, indeed, right when she said, just wait until you have children of your own. and, now, for all the times i want to run away screaming or i am counting down til bedtime as i slowly start ripping my hair out, one by one... i still wouldn't trade this for the world. i wouldn't take back one minute. today i am praising the Lord for the two sweetest boys that make me a mother. the two sweetest boys that are gifts from my Savior. they are His but He has trusted us to keep them. i can't worship Him enough for that.
for those of you who's hearts ache on mother's day, i pray you feel His comfort ever strong. that the voids that need to be filled are filled with love, strength and peace from our always worthy King. you are loved, you are precious, and you are enough.
to all you mothers that i hold dear, that i love so. the mothers that inspire me, encourage me, laugh with me, cry with me, who've been there before, who offer me their best advice, who pray for me, who pray for my children, who love me…mothering mistakes and all.
here's to you…happy mother's day!
(i stole all of these pictures. love you guys.)
