I have wanted to write all day, but it's hard to find words to write on Mother's day.
I have thought and thought, but the words that are powerful enough to express what it means to be a mother don't exist! I have decided to just share a few thoughts instead of writing one fluid post.
Becoming a bonus mom to Lily has changed my life! It's through her that I learned first learned how to love like a mother. She's the most precious girl in the world and I love her with my whole heart. I am so thankful for the close relationship that she and I have!
I can say that being a mother changes you forever. It's a beautiful change and it comes from deep within your soul. It does not come from giving birth.
I can't tell you how important I feel it is for Mamas (and Daddys) to PLAY with their children! We love to play in our house! We play in every room and we play everything! From playing "cooking show" when we are making dinner or baking to playing board games and school - we love to play and it certainly makes an impact on my relationship with the girls!
Piglet once said, "Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart." How true!
My two girls are the biggest blessings and I am honored to be who God chose to help raise them!
Being a mom is by far the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever done. It's my dream job.
NOTHING feels better or brings more peace that having my baby in my arms peacefully sleeping... or cooing... or smiling at me!
I make sure to tell my girls every day how special they are. I tell them they are beautiful, they are smart, they are funny, they are kind, they are good, they are precious, they are fun... I mean every word and I believe it is so important for them to hear this daily because they need to believe every word too!
