I get to celebrate Mother’s Day because of these two cuties.These little boys are my world – the reason I stopped working as a nurse, why I missed my final college graduation this weekend, and why I am a stronger runner. They make me laugh hard or want to scream with frustration. They keep me awake at night and are (partly) responsible for my becoming coffee addict.
And I wouldn’t trade this craziness called Motherhood for anything.
I have learned having patience, extending grace, and crying out to God for help. I have prayed nearly continually for my boys’ hearts since before they were born. I love watching Little Man learn new letters and hearing Baby Thunder’s new sounds. I love being “Mommy” and “Emmm” to these sweet, crazy, funny, talented boys!
And what better way to celebrate being Mom than a solo grocery trip, getting new running shoes, and going for a quick (solo) run? All because I have The Amazing Hubby who makes dinner, washes dishes, and folds the boys’ clothes so I can have a little quiet time to breathe… So that I can come back and be a good, mentally-competent mother to my boys. 🙂
Happy Mother’s Day to all, especially the expecting moms-to-be!
