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...

The memory of friendship...

There is something so intriguing about childhood friendships...

1.) ...because they are beautiful.

2.) ...because there are no grudges or talking behind backs.

3.) ...because they make being friends look so easy!

Exhibit A: The two on the right are arguing, yet I'm 100% sure when everything was resolved no one thought about it later or talked about it again...ever. Oh to be a child and forget the faults of others.

Hugs are without discrimination, smiles are often, and everyone, no matter the age difference are friends.
How did we stray so far away from this perfect and loving type of friendship as we grew up?

Once upon a time when our friendships almost mirrored the way Jesus befriends us.
 Back when sharing a little chair wasn't uncomfortable, it was fun.
  Back when it wasn't embarrassing to have food on your face, or be extra bundled up in a stroller.
Back when your cousins were your best friends...

Whatever memories you have of childhood friendships, compare it to your friendships of today. Are they as much fun and as true?

My friend Skyelynn quotes the verse below to me and compares it to our friendship. I love it that she feels this way because it truly describes our bond.

Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.

She sharpens me, I sharpen her. In other words, we encourage each other. Make your friendships iron worthy!
