Something like this would be oh so yummy.
We are battling colds, sore throats and ear infections. And, I am SO ready for our home to be free of sickness! It's amazing how being sick totally wipes me of all my energy! But, rainy days should be days where mommies get a break. A day to just sit, sip coffee and snuggle up with a good book and one of these super comfy looking blankets:)

But, back to reality...Looks like that will not be the case today as I have two beautiful babies to care for and love on unconditionally. Motherhood is something I am still learning so much about...and not a day goes by I don't struggle with selfishness. Motherhood is about self-sacrificing...putting our children before ourselves - making them our priority. Kind of reminds me of this scripture:
9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit— - fruit that will last— - and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. 17 This is my command: Love each other.”
May I remain in Your love...May I desire to follow Your written Word...I seek joy, true joy in You...joy that spills over into my family...a joy that only comes from knowing you.
May each day be a total surrender to You...to my husband...to my girls. May I truly learn how to lay down my life for my family.
You chose me...may I never forget that.
May my fruit be fruit that will last...fruit that will lead others to You...that they may "taste and see Your goodness."
And lastly, to love...simply love.
