Refelction on being a mother

Being a mommy is the best job in the world. Yes, we have our moments of frustration, exhaustion, worry, anxiety and oh so much more, but then that little child comes up and hugs us or gives us those little baby butterfly kisses or just wants to hold mommy and "talk" to her for a little while. Sometimes it is just watching that little child's peaceful sleep. It's those precious little moments that remind us why we love being "mommy". It's a perfectly indescribable feeling of overwhelming joy and love. It's those moments that allow us to keep going, to keep staying up night after night, to keep doing laundry and washing dishes and preparing food and all the other 95 thousand things we do during the day for our family.
What a wonderful pleasure as well to know that God love us ( and them) even more than we love them? So often we neglect our "moment" with Him- the one that keeps us going. How much more pleasant our day would be if we let Him "hold us" for a little while just so we could talk to Him. What a perfectly indescribable feeling of overwhelming joy and love it should bring us. It is these moments that keep going in our christian life that help us do what we do- out of love for the One who has already given us so much and yet continues to do it day after day.
Thank you Lord, for saving my soul. Thank you Lord, for making me whole. Thank you, Lord for giving to me, Thy great salvation so rich and free!
