Happy Mother's Day!

Wow, I can't believe I've already had this blog over a year! I remember writing for Mother's Day last year, too! Today I just have this cute little poem that I found online. I reflects so many of my own thoughts and experiences as a mother that I feel like they could be my own words! I really loved it so I wanted to share it with any of you moms of young children or anyone else and I hope that you enjoy it!

Every Mother's Prayer
Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day,
With little time to stop and pray,
For life's been anything but calm,
Since you called on me to be a mom.

Running errands, matching socks,
Building dreams with building blocks.
Cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes,
And other stuff that children lose.

Fitting lids on bottled bugs,
Wiping tears and giving hugs.
A stack of last week's mail to read,
So where's the quiet time I need?

Yet when I steal a minute Lord,
Just at the sink or ironing board,
To ask the blessings of your grace,
I see them in my small one's face,
That you have blessed me all the while,
As I stop to kiss that precious smile.

Here are some pictures I took today of my "precious smiles" that I daily kiss, with gratitude to their Maker for allowing me the amazing blessing and privilege of being their mother. No matter how hard a day may be, they're worth every second of it! I love these three little people more than I ever imagined I could love anyone. I feel so grateful to be celebrating Mother's Day today as a mother myself.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers!

Jess, you tell me about your blog and I check it once a week and haven't seen a new post since you told me about it. Is it my fault should I stop checking so you'll start blogging again? I'll do anything to help.
