As I celebrate Mother’s Day this year I can’t help but think that this could be the last year I am a mother of three.
Next year at this time I will be a mother of four. My children will have another brother or sister. Our family will be blessed yet once again.
It’s so hard to believe that the time is getting so close.
When we started our adoption it felt like it would be eternity before we would receive a placement. And now? Now…we are within months of it.
Sometimes I wonder if I can handle it. I mean, I often feel overwhelmed with three children. How will I ever manage to wrangle four.
And then I remember that God doesn’t doubt me. He asked us to follow this journey and we obeyed. I know He will provide the strength and patience to handle four.
I may not be the best mother on the planet, but I know I am doing MY best and that’s what counts, right?
There are definitely days we struggle.
Someone’s moody. Someone’s tired. Someone’s hungry. Someone’s disrespectful.
**By they way Spongebob, that’s inappropriate. <<Ahem>>
But every evening when we sit down on the couch together after a long day…and they squeeze my neck and say “Mommy, you are my best friend”…it makes it ALL worth it.
I could not feel more grateful this Mother’s Day.
Not only for the 3 wonderful boys that God has blessed me to mother, but also for the extremely spectacular mother that He provided me and the fabulous mother-in-law I inherited.
*ps Can someone tell me how this is going down right now? Isn’t it suppose to be MOMMY NAPS on Mother’s Day???
I guess I can’t be too mad at him since he posted this on my Facebook page.
Thankfully the words cover up my sexy <<ahem>> legs <<ahem>>. Embarrassing.
