Living With Gusto

Motherhood

My thoughts on being a mama (at age 48, no less!):
1~ I never wanted to be a mother. God had other plans. I wouldn’t change it for anything.
2~ Being a mom has totally changed me. It will. Nothing will ever be the same. You will never be the same person you were. It’s a good thing.
3~ I became a REAL warrior the day I became a mom.
4~ Though I didn’t birth my children, my love is as strong and encompassing as if I had.
5~ Though I loved my children from the day they came to live with us, I remember clearly the moment I fell “in love” with them. That feeling made all the sacrifice and hard times possible.
6~ Being a mom keeps me really, really close to Jesus! It also helps me understand God’s love for me.
7~ Motherhood ain’t for sissies! It’s exhausting, yet immensly satisfying, to be a mother. No one should take the calling and privilege lightly.

8~ You don’t have to be a mom to love children with all your heart. Our children need you! Love them with all you have.

There you have it. Wisdom from an old mama.
