motherhood

originally I was going to write about who I am.. am I lost or am I found... well... I think I am in Limbo and for now it is ok.. to give of myself only to KNOW that I cannot lose myself.. but this is in part who I am and what I want to teach my children... to be a MOMMY. :)

A Mother’s Prayer

Dear Lord,
it’s such a hectic day,
With little time to stop and pray
For life’s been anything but calm
Since you called me to be a mom.
Running errands, matching socks,
Building dreams with wooden blocks,
Cooking, cleaning, finding shoes
And other stuff that children lose, -
Fitting lids on bottled bugs,
Wiping tears and giving hugs,
A stack of last week’s mail to read
So where’s the quiet time I need? -
Yet, when I steal a moment, Lord,
Just at the sink or ironing board,
To ask the blessings of Your grace,
I see then, in my small one’s face,
That you have blessed me all the while--
And I stoop to kiss that precious smile.
--Author Unknown

and so motherhood goes...
who would you like to be goes the survey... or talk to.. .I would like to talk to Mary.. you know, the Mother of God... you know she was running around the outside of the Temple saying, "get down, Son. Don't put that in your mouth. Because I said so that's why. I know they said mean things, maybe they didn't have a good day.. look for the good in them.

I was so excited last night- almost giddy learning how to use my camera better.. love learning- makes my heart sing... I dreamt of how I could learn more, do more with my camera. It made me want to get up and play some more.. but I knew MOTHERHOOD would be calling me soon.
I asked for the dirty laundry, the pile that never ceases to exist in this house, the weeds that never seem to get pulled but the flowers do because they are so pretty to my toddler! :)

Life is good.. no... it's GREAT!
