The funny thing about motherhood

Being a mama is a very funny thing. It's never getting to "clock out", it's having to be the bad guy with your child's favorite word "no", it's lugging all of your kids to the bathroom with you, it's being awake at hours of the night that no one wants to see. It's painful, and stressful, and often overwhelming with the prayer of "God please don't let me mess this up". But mainly, it's never being alone. It's their tiny slobbery kisses from dirty faces smiling. It's hearing "mommy I love you." Or them telling you you're they're best girl. It's always always always being in their corner, and catching them no matter what. It's those quiet moments in the night rocking, nursing, humming because they're sick or scared or just because they want you. It's the kiss after every scraped knee, every bonked head, every spanking (yes my babies get spanked ;) ) followed not long after with an "I love you". Motherhood is a funny thing. It's not for the faint of heart. And I am so blessed, and praise God every day for trusting me with these tiny people. 

The overwhelming prayer on my heart today has been for the women who aren't technically mamas just yet. The ones who desire everything I just wrote about. Who would give their eyes just to snuggle a screaming baby at 3 in the morning. My prayers today are for you. That while my words may not help, you would know that your desires are God given and that won't return void. Time often feels like the enemy, but it's precious all the same. So happy Mother's Day to the not-yet mamas. I believe it in my bones that your day is coming and it will be so so sweet. 

Happy Mother's Day! What a beautiful day it is!!
