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!
