“Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her.” (Proverbs 31:28, NLT)
Yesterday was Mother’s Day. Perhaps this post should have been written before the day but some days, it takes me a while to process my thoughts and feelings.
I have been blessed with a wonderful mom and there have also been other women who have influenced my life.
When I became a mom for the first time, I can remember so vividly sitting looking at my little one and wondering how on earth I was going to do this thing called “motherhood.” The question that went through my mind was, “What was I thinking?!?!”
We were not sent home with a handbook and even if we had one, nothing could have prepared us for the months of colic.
And here I am to share a few thoughts on motherhood:
- Being a mom is more that being the one who bears a child and raises them.
- Motherhood is more than a responsibility ”“ it is a ministry.
- Motherhood will require work ”“ long hours ”“ less sleep ”“ a tiredness you never expected.
- Motherhood means sacrifice.
