Pre-kids my heart loved my God, husband, family, friends, and shopping! Ever sing having children my heart has changed. I still love those previous things but my children have consumed my heart with their little selves. It’s like they moved in and didn’t leave space for anything else!
I never knew how much love my heart could hold until I became a Mom – Unknown
Along with all that love, they brought worry to my heart. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t worry about the most ridiculous of scenarios. Example: While driving to the base yesterday I envisioned us crashing off the side of the road and me being hurt and not knowing how to save my babies. This then brought me into tears just thinking about such a horrible incident. I’m not exactly sure why I think these horrific things, it just happens.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6-7
When you love something so much it tends to truly hurt your heart. As I write this the only way I can describe how my heart feels is an ache. It is aching because I can’t possibly explain or write how important these little boys are in our life. How truly amazing is it that they GREW IN MY BELLY!!! I mean how do people NOT believe in God with that miracle?!
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
No one can really prepare you for Motherhood. Whether you birthed your children or adopted them – it’s all the same. You still get the sleepless nights, the feeling of being an inadequate Mother, tantrums, and that absolute unbelievable love.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
Take a moment to go love on your babies – or fur babies if you don’t have the human kind – and remind yourself just how very blessed and lucky you are. If you are near family, hug your Mom and tell her how much she means to you. If you are separated by too many miles to hug her, call – email – or send a prayer to let her know how much you love her.
