Today our four year old granddaughter, Brooklyn, was over and we were coloring with markers. She has been introduced to the alphabet by her older sister, Maya, and asked me to write the letter M. I wrote MOM, turned it upside down, and showed her it said WOW. Brooklyn was impressed. Whatever season of life of motherhood you may be in, may you feel WOW–CELEBRATED and LOVED!!!
I didn’t appreciate my mom until I grew up and became one myself. One Mother’s Day, when I was a child, I asked my mom, “Why is there a Mother’s Day and there isn’t a children’s day to celebrate me”? I didn’t like her response then, but it makes me smile today…she said “Everyday is children’s day”.
WOW–what a privilege and responsibility it is to be a MOM. God has entrusted and gifted you in such a way to love, nurture, and raise the children He has blessed you with. Is being a mom easy? Absolutely not. Becoming a mom is a life changer…On the job training, requires multi tasking of various responsibilities which include managing a household, organizing a budget and show casing your culinary expertise (or lack there of).
Whatever season of life and MOM-hood you are in, take time to enjoy! Being a mother is more like a marathon than a sprint! I hope you realize how much God loves you this Mother’s Day. If you are a mother of a preschooler and feel like you are in this season alone, get connected with a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Group. http://www.mops.org/
WOW MOM!!! To each of you Mom’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day or Happy “WOW MOM Day”!
After, I wrote this blog, I found this video clip which hopefully will encourage you and cheer you on.
