John and I had four wonderful years being married without kids and we've had four AMAZING years with kids, and God is teaching me my new mission in life is to get motherhood right. I need to do three things everyday: 1. Put God first, 2. Pray A LOT, and 3. Be flexible always
I am SO BLESSED to be a mom and I really want to do a good job. I have two healthy children who are really smart and who keep us hopping. There is never a dull moment.
My mission right now is to invest this precious time that I am home to be a great wife and a loving mom. Julia often asks me, Mom, why are you praying? And I tell her, because I need God's strength right now. I find myself praying out loud in the car, while I cook, and during our chores. I can't do it all in my own strength...it's taken me a long time to get this one. I know it on paper and in my mind, but normally I try to do it all in my own strength.
Everyone keeps telling me to treasure every minute, and I can honestly tell you, I absolutely do!
