What I Love About Being a Mom

There's my whole world right there.  Right in one picture.  Our little family takes up every bit of my heart space.  Sometimes to the point where I think it could burst.

I love so many things about being a mom.  I love knowing this gift was given to me and selected for me and everything in every moment in time is perfect because of it.  Even when things don't feel or seem perfect...they are.

I love that this little creature; this little man has given me the ability to see the world through different eyes.  More curious, less judgmental eyes.

I love that being a mom makes me somehow more important in this world.  Maybe not to anyone, but the people in this picture.  But it definitely makes me feel more important.

I love that this little man has given me a passion to do the things I've always been too scared to do.  The things that make me who I am and define our family.

I love that being a mom means I get to kiss the boo boos, wipe the tears, rock the baby, clean the nose.  I love the hugs, the kisses, the giggles, the smiles, every single last one of them.

I love that being a mom means I put myself on the back burner.  It means my time, energy, money, and attention gets practically all used up before 8:00 at night.  It means this little guy is a sponge soaking up every last bit of it.  And I love it that way.

Being a mom is the best, most exhausting, most special gift I've ever been given.  I'm so grateful this little man came into our lives and decided to make me MOM.
