I am at a loss for words. Whenever I think about motherhood, I can’t seem to find the appropriate words to describe what I want to write about it. Being a mother for the past 9 years, I have changed and grew so much.
If you ask me to enumerate what are the joyful moments of motherhood, I won’t be able to chose! From the first time I laid my eyes on my babies or our late night breastfeeding sessions or hearing them talk for the first time or seeing how much my kids love each other, there are just too many wonderful moments that motherhood has brought to me.
If you ask me to enumerate what are the unforgettable moments, I would say that it was when my son cried as I was explaining to him why he needs to be disciplined or when my daughter needs to do something that she doesn’t like to do. These are the moments when I see my kids grow and mature. Stretching out from their comfort zones, learning from their mistakes and trying something new.
One day, all of these will be nothing but memories. I am overwhelmed with gratefulness to the Lord for every moment that I get to spend with my kids. As we spend each day together, I have come to know them and truly see their heart. I myself have changed and grown in ways I never could have if I didn’t become a mom.
Thank you God for giving me the gift of motherhood.
