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...

kids: the reason for moms

It's something I've been needing for a while now.  My writing suffers because of it, my unorganized closets suffer because of it, and other things like reading, cleaning, keeping in touch with family and friends, well, almost everything suffers when inspiration is lost.
But this morning I saw something that brought me some more of this inspiration I've been craving.  I watched my husband get up at 4:30, and after showering and getting dressed, he walked into each of our kids' rooms and hugged and kissed them while they slept.  He does this everyday, but today was one of the rare mornings I was still upstairs to see it. It's endearing to see a man be soft and sweet.  You've heard it said that when you see your husband with your kids you fall in love all over again, that would be true!
This week is going to be a busy one.  I have recipes to make, nooks and crannies to clean, a birthday party to plan and kids to entertain while I do all of this.  Inspiration is a must.  If I start to lose it again, I'll picture my husband making the rounds to kiss the kids goodbye while they sleep.
And if that isn't inspiration enough..this little girl squinting to watch her daddy and brother and sister outside playing is pretty inspiring. :)

Sorry about the lapse in blog posts, I'll try to be better about writing now that I've found my inspiration!

  1. I love it that Darrell hugs and kisses the kids! How wonderful for them to have such tender memories storing up in their little hearts! It will serve them well in years to come as they learn more about the tender love of a heavenly Father, who holds them even dearer! So sweet! Yes, you've inspired me too!


I like feedback..but be kind :)
