I want to be in all senses of the words, All. Things. Mama.
As far back as I can remember I've wanted to be a mom, not just any mom, but the mom that stays home with her kids full time. The mom who loves even when she is not loved back, who can't breathe without thinking of her kids first. The mom who loves teaching, playing, cooking, baking, laughing, and kissing owies. The mom who is ALL THINGS MAMA. My husband and I scrimp so that dream can be fulfilled. Being a mom is not part time for me. It is something that has captured my heart. All of the going ons of my life start with thoughts of my kids. My kids consume my love and my life and I allow it because, with God's help they are the essence of what makes me a mother. This is me...

When the time comes...

When the time comes I will tell my kids just how great God has been to us.  How we had no money, but somehow the bills were paid.  How we lost a baby, but were blessed 2 others.  How all of the things we considered to be bad, and sad, and totally life-changing turns for the worse, became good and wonderful and true blessings that made us stretch our faith farther than we knew it could go.
Our hearts are overflowing with blessings.  Things that have come to us, things that are happening now, things that are on our way from God that will change our lives and bring us hope.  He never fails to surprise us!
And when the time comes that they'll understand these things, these glorious happenings and truths of our lives, I will cry tears of joy while I tell them, hoping they'll learn from it and live differently because of it.
But for now, we pray simple prayers of "We love you Jesus, give us a good nappy wap", or "give us a good nights sleepys" AAAAAmen!  The simpleness that God loves and the faith of a child that He desires from all of us.
