Kevin and I are just back from a week long trip to St. Croix. Kevin's mom and my parents helped watch the kids while we were gone.
I'll post details of the trip later but today I got to see the kids for the first time in more than a week.
And I realized again -- I always know this, but yeah, need the reminder -- that being a mother is a huge blessing. I am not perhaps a "natural mother" in the sense that I didn't gravitate to young children when I was an older teen and young adult. I didn't even want to get married or have children until I was 26 :-).
22 years later, I'm a mom to 9. God has a huge sense of humor, I think!
So Happy Mother's Day to you moms out there. It is not an easy job, but most things in life aren't easy. It is a noble job, a purposeful job. Being single would have been purposeful as well, but the Lord had this plan for my life, that I would marry in my late 20's, give up my potentially high powered career, and serve as wife and mother to my family.
I could not be more blessed.
