Relishing the Joys of Motherhood
After a really hard day I find myself trying to focus on the joys of motherhood rather then the things that could make me go crazy. Here are some things that are keeping me smiling tonight.
-Tucking my children in after they are asleep. I just love to see their sweet faces. This nightly ritual reminds me that they have divine worth and a heavenly father who is watching over us all.
-Baby kisses. Those open mouth kisses are so sweet
-Catching your kids doing good when you are not around
-Hearing the sweet sounds of siblings in play
-Listening to my children read
-Hearing my older kids remind the younger ones of rules or helping them do something
-Seeing their dad play and laugh with them
These are some of the joys that I will relish forever. What moments will always bring you joy?
