Motherhood…The Everyday Gifts That Take My Breath Away

Motherhood…The Everyday Gifts That Take My Breath Away

With Mother’s Day around the corner, I have been thinking.  Being a mom is what I always wanted…more than anything.  After I got married…I longed instantly for babies.  When I welcomed my first amazing son into the world, I was overjoyed.  A year later we had our second baby boy…and then a little girl.  We are now anxiously awaiting number four!

Needless to say…I am deep into the trenches of motherhood.  And while it’s still amazing…it’s not at all what I thought it would be.  It’s hard.  It’s gross.  It’s exhausting.  It’s emotional.  It’s everything I didn’t know it would be.  And SO much more.  Somewhere in between the dirty diapers, bickering siblings, constant cleaning and endless laundry are these amazing moments that make everything worth it.  It’s those minutes, the amazing ones, that make it all worth it.  Those moments, I think, are the true gifts of motherhood…

Moments like…

My little boys bringing me bouquets of dandelions

Watching them write their name for the first time

Seeing them holding hands, without asking

watching my boys become the best of friends

Their pure, sweet laughter

They remember lessons we’ve taught them

When older ladies stop me in the grocery to tell me how beautiful they are (they are, what can I say?)

Watching the excitement of birthdays and holidays through their eyes

When they actually give in and fall asleep on my lap

When they still want to snuggle

Watching them trying to be just like their daddy

Watching their awe at things that seem everyday to us

Our bed filling up with kids on a Saturday morning

Watching them sleep

When they say “I love you” this much…and then try to show me

Happy Mother’s Day to all!
