I enjoy having time to myself and spending alone time with the hubby, but let me tell you, I missed my kids HUGE over the last few weeks. I missed the hugs, the I Love You’s, and just the sounds they bring to our home. Over the last week as they prepared to come home, they called every day and missed us just as much. As we all get older and time seems to literally fly by, I want to enjoy the simple moments with my family and not be so uptight about trying to get everything right. My kids bring me joy and although motherhood is not an easy task, it is a very important one and I am learning to appreciate the opportunity I have been given. God has entrusted my husband and I to bring these children into this world and to raise them. I know it’s the first day we are all together again as a family, but I’m less frustrated, a little more tolerable, and a whole lot of grateful! I’m thankful for what I have because the love of a child and how they make you feel is almost indescribable. As I’m writing this post, I have a BIG grin on my face. But one thing I do know without a shadow of a doubt…….I Love My Kids!!!
Today I have given lots of hugs, some kisses just because, and said I love you a gazillion times. Tomorrow is not promised and I want them to know that no matter what, mommy loves you. It won’t be something they wonder about or yearn to hear because I will continue to tell them endlessly. When I sit back and think about how much I love my kids it only makes me appreciate how much God loved us…..He gave His life! Never doubt it, no matter what.
My babies are back, life is good and I am a mom in progress, far from perfection.
