Being a mom is a great job, and a hard one, one that brings all ranges of emotion at all different times and all that can be in one day. From being a first time mom and holding that new little bundle in my arms. Being over taken with love and fear, for this gift that has been entrusted to me. ME! WOW! I now have four of them that have been given to me. I cherish each and every one of them too. They are all different, and bring so much adventure to my life! They make me see the world, and life, through their eyes at times. I can't imagine my life with out them. I wonder at times what did I do before I had kiddos. (Yes I can remember). I know I didn't have nearly as much laundry to do!! But I do love all that laundry, the cereal dried on the floor and needing a pick ax to get it off, stepping on spilt cereal and getting it squished between my toes before I get my flip flops on, tripping over toys in the hall, the crayons and various other surprises I find in the wash, and the millions of dandelions I get all summer long! Why? Because my life is so full of the blessings we have, and I'm so thankful for it!
I have grown to really appreciate my mom. I have learned many things from her and find her words coming out of my mouth at times too. I stop and think "did I just say that?!" And yup, I did just say that. I'll call her up sometimes and tell her a funny story about something one of the kiddos have done and she'll laugh and say "now I wonder where they got that from..." in a sarcastic, humorous way. I'll just laugh and say "I have no idea..."
My life revolves around my kiddos, and my man. Oh yeah and the farm! ha!
So here is one farm mom wishing all you a great Mother's Day!
