motherhood.



Motherhood. Motherhood is hard work. I work long hours, 7 days a week...I rarely get a break...I am on call every night..and I don't get paid. But if done right...the benefits are amazing. I saw a quote the other day that said something along the lines of when your children are young...you will never be this loved again...Their love, and the joy children bring come in some of the sweetest and in the simplest of forms...In the form of a small brown eyed girl who stops playing because she spots you sitting in the shade under a tree and travels her way into your lap. In the form of a boy who asks about 100 questions a day that start off with ..."Mama?" and instead of asking a question he simply says, "Mama? I love you." In the form of a red head who just walks by and hugs your legs for no reason...other than you are you.

The joy motherhood brings is sewn together with simple moments...moments that don't cost money...they only cost your time...and can leave your heart feeling more full than you could ever imagine.

I hope everyone has a lovely Mother's day!!!!
