At my house...

I have decided that I am the best version of myself as a Wife and Mother.

It is not the most glamorous job, and sometimes it is messy and exhausting,

but at the end of the day I know that this is the life that I want to live.

There will be plenty of time when my boys are grown and gone to get more "me time", more sleep and even have a cleaner house. I want to look back on this crazy time of my life with happiness and not regret that I didn't have my heart and soul fully invested.

The awful tornado that devastated my area has left me in a reflective and sentimental mood. Life is fragile and short and I don't want to waste one day being "overwhelmed" or "frazzled" with my precious little family. I know that the Lord will bless and strengthen me in the sacred role as Wife and Mother. With Him anything is possible---and I will rely on His promise that He will make weak things strong in us. What a beautiful gift.

I hope all you Mamas have a Happy Mothers Day this Sunday and know that what you do is sacred and beautiful!

You have no idea of how much I needed to hear this today. I have 4 kids...all 5 and under and my husband is a resident. Life is crazy and I'm just mastering the art of "boy" as I only have one girl. I am so glad of the reminder to chill out and just enjoy this time. I know I'll miss it because I also know that I am the best version of myself as a wife and mom!

Thanks for leaving a comment-- I wish we were neighbors and I could take your kiddos for a couple hours and give you a little break! I know how hard it is to have a hubby working hard ( gone) when your children are young! My heart goes out to you-- hang in there!! Xoxo
