Top 10 {MOM}ents of Motherhood



Sometimes life is overwhelming (full disclosure - everyone, apart from me, in my house currently has the stomach flu)...and sometimes you wonder what it would be like to have just one day...one hour...one minute to yourself. Some days the constant toy clean up, snot running down faces, cheerios in my bra and scrubbing vomit out of hair, overwhelms me. They are all aspects of motherhood I could happily live without. But losing them would come at a cost. So many more moments of motherhood that are too priceless to give up. And when I think about that, I gain a little perspective. I snap out of my pity party, put on a smile and dance in the kitchen with my sweet ones...

 Top 10 things I would miss out on if I wasn't a mom...

10. Waking up to adorable baby smiles - c'mon, how stinkin' cute is this?!?


9. Their laughter - I mean seriously it is crazy infectious.


8. Seeing the world through their eyes - It is "wonder"ful.


7. Learning to "play" - life is so much fun!


6. Being silly - life can be way too serious sometimes!


5. Watching the friendship of siblings bloom - what is better for a mama's heart?



4. Seeing their love for Jesus grow - seeing them be the love of Jesus!



3.Knowing my life has eternal purpose - precious souls are entrusted in my care.


2. Getting hugs & kisses on a regular basis - adults need physical touch too!


1. Hearing the words "I love you" every day - the ultimate joy of motherhood.


It is worth every moment.

  2. My least favorite task is grocery shopping because we are restricted by so many foods regarding one of our boys. My favorite part of being a mom is holding the hand of my now 12 year old and hearing him still say, "I love you Mommy." LOve the "Mommy" part and the "nuggle" time with my now 10 year old who is just a love bug. They are the best people I know! Being a mom is a gift. Thank you, Lord!

The Beatitudes of Motherhood {FREE PRINTABLE}

Blessed is the mom who is so overwhelmed and ready to pull her hair out, that she surrenders her life to God. She knows that she cannot rely upon her own strength.  The Holy Spirit will fill her, she will decrease - allowing God to increase which will bring Glory to His Kingdom.
Blessed is the mom who is grieving for her loved one. The mom who has lost a sweet baby in her womb. The mom who mourns for a child she once held in her arms. The mom who is a widow. The mom who is an orphan. The mom who has said goodbye to a dear friend.  This time of grieving will allow the Great Comforter to wrap her up in His arms and give her rest.  
Blessed is the mom who is comfortable in her own skin, confident in her choices and satisfied with her life. She does not compare herself to the supermodel mom or cast judgement on different parenting styles. She does not boast about herself or her children, she does not seek fortune or fame.  For she is a daughter of the most high King, her worth and inheritance …

"Martyr"hood (A Lesson In Being A Selfless Mom)

"Do I seriously have to do this again?" I thought as I rolled out of bed, stumbling to the door. It was the fifth round of clean-up that night. I stripped the bed (after a momentary "could I just throw a towel on it?"), cleaned up my scared, shaking daughter, remade the bed, and tucked her back in, kissing her and reminding her that the bowl was on the floor if she needed it (in hopes that I could avoid some clean up). I added the dirty sheets to the growing basket on the stairs, and crawled back into bed with a 13 month old who suddenly needed to nurse. Sleep must have overcome me at some point because I startled awake to do it all over again an hour later. 
Have I succeeded in making you feel sorry for me? Have I convinced you of my martyrdom? I am ashamed to say that those were not even the worst thoughts running through my head, and I could honestly recount that story much more pathetically.

It happened the next day. My children were feeling a *little* better,…

God Changed My Mind About Modesty

I was recently sitting in a mall food court with my fifteen month old daughter, as my husband waited in line for the carousel with our older two. As the ride came to a stop, there was a group of young girls riding on horses directly in front of me. I noticed that the one little girl (who was maybe 8 or 9) was wearing very short shorts - as in you could not even tell she was wearing anything when she was sitting on the horse. To make matters worse, when she raised herself up off the horse, her entire bottom was exposed! I cringed and felt sick to my stomach as I peered around at the hundreds of people in the busy mall food court who may have just witnessed it as well. The little girl adjusted her shorts and went on her way, but I couldn't shake the sick feeling I had - the thought that someone in the mall could have enjoyed seeing that little girl like that...

I know that "wardrobe malfunctions" may happen sometimes. Even when dressed modestly, the wind can blow up a ski…
