|Going to the park!|
I realized quickly that I am not just raising two kids. I'm raising two boys on their way to becoming men.
I pray daily over them. I breastfed them. I've cried at their bedside. I've consoled them when they laid in a hospital bed. I'm in awe of the smells that come from them. I hate to see them in pain. I laugh, dance and play with them. I shirk at their annoying comments to each other. I scream when they don't listen. I've sat through hours of baseball so they can see, feel and know I support them. I secretly enjoy the rare occasion that they will let me kiss them (although NEVER in public). I seek out those "teachable moments". I cry when I receive a handmade gift or poem. I just LOVE being their MOM!
Raising them is one of the greatest joys in my life. I was made for my boys. God wired this body to hang out with these boys. These boys are smart, silly, low maintenance, and keep me extremely active.
I have a huge network of mom friends! Moms have to stick together to get through the toughest assignment of our life. No sick days or paid time off. So on this Mother's Day I honor all those who in some way touch the life of a child.
A child you birthed, teach in school, take for ice cream, volunteer with or just love because they are in your neighborhood. It takes a village to raise kids. Mother's Day is the perfect time to salute this amazing sacrifice. (Posted by Roslyn)
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
