This is why ...

I thought that in honor of Mother's Day it was worth revisiting this post. Since I became a mother, each year on Mother's Day, I have the urge to go out and buy each of my children a gift because it is such an honor to be their mother. Being a mom is the best thing I've ever done ... and I am so blessed to have these 4 children in my life! Happy Mother's Day to all - to everyone who is a mom and has a mom! :)
This is why ...

This is why my home is also a classroom.

This is why my heart is more full of joy than I could have ever imagined.

This is why my life will never be the same.

This is why I am more exhausted than I ever thought possible.

This is why my reality is greater than my dreams could have ever been.

This is why my ministry is far different than I expected it to be.

This is why my respect and love for my husband has grown even deeper.

This is why.

Help me, Lord, to remember "why" on the difficult days too!
