(Giveaway Tuesday!!!! Can’t wait to share the new MOPS book with you.)
In honor of Mothers’ Day and in celebration of the birth of my nephew, Miles, I am kicking off a blog series about motherhood.
Today is Mothers’ Day, and I’m filled with many emotions. I miss my mom a lot. Every single day. I miss seeing my mom-in-law, too. And my Grandma. But I’m also grateful to celebrate my own motherhood next to the little snuggle bugs who made me “Mommy.” This photograph was taken on the day that I first gained that oh-so-special title.
At the moment when I first held my new baby boy, I knew the “why” of my existence. I felt certain that I had found the work for which I was made. This arena is where I’m best equipped to impact the world and bring God joy. It’s also the place where mistakes have a mighty sting and emotions can become painfully intertwined in the practical steps of daily life. But the rewards are too great to articulate, too sacred to fully grasp.
