Earlier this week I was driving down the road with my littles in the backseat and started thinking about how truly blessed I am. This train of thought started as I replaying in my mind how Cam has started with all kinds of imaginative play throughout his days. He makes Buzz Lightyear fly around our living room, drives cars all down our hallway/entryway and over any wall near him, and likes to pretend he is a bear and scare people with his loud roar! It seriously is one of the best things to watch your child learn and grow and just wonder what is going through their precious mind. It is a true and complete blessing to be able to mother such wonderful children!
Then, I went further down that train of thought and became overwhelmed with just how wonderful it is to be a mother and get to experience life in a completely different way than I would if I wasn’t a mother. My second little, EmmaLee-Tyler, is just starting out in this world at 7 weeks old and I get to watch hit all the milestones Cam has already reached. I get to experience her rolling over, babbling, talking, crawling, and walking within this next year. It is always so fun and exciting to see my littles grow developmentally!
Life is so much more fun to me as a mom. Life is also more tiring and scary as I think about what my children will face in their lifetime. As a mother you wonder what type of personalities your children will have..will they be quiet and reserved or loud and outgoing? Will they be interested in science and math or take an interest in working with their hands? Will they want to be a preacher and a teacher or a doctor and a lawyer? Who knows except for the Lord! Also as a mother you don’t want your littles to have to face heartache or any danger. I pray that as long as they are in mine and my husband’s care that they will look to the Lord and us in times of uncertainty as that one of the blessings of being their parent.
I love being a mom and getting to watch my “blessings” grow and learn each day. I love getting to hear Cam learn new words, how to count, and how to color. I love getting to watch EmmaLee-Tyler smile, laugh, and roll over. I love having this feeling of being truly blessed my what the Lord has given me and two of my greatest blessings are most definitely my children!
