I didn't wake up to breakfast in bed. I didn't have little ones cuddling me as I woke up. I didn't have a clean house waiting on me. I didn't have a bouquet of flowers. I didn't get waited on all day. I didn't have a of a day of pampering, as a matter of fact….it was just the opposite. I planted a garden….
I was HOT and sweaty and TIRED.
I didn't get dinner made for me. As a matter if fact…
I made dinner and cleaned the dishes afterwards.
Yet, today was one of the best Mother's Day I have had as a mom.
You must be asking, WHY?
I woke up beside my best friend.
I woke up to 2 beautiful, loving, children that love Jesus.
I got to hug my sweet Mother's neck.
I spent time with my sweet sister.
I got messages from friends that sent their love and encouragement.
I spent the day enjoying God's beauty all around me.
I am thankful He allowed me
to be a Mommy!
This title, I could never earn.
However, there could never be a greater name.
I don't need breakfast in bed or a day of service or pampering. I just needed this day to reflect on His goodness and grace, allowing me to have yet one more day that I don't deserve.
