Here are a few quotes and a poem that I just read that made me feel I made a good decision to become a mother. Sometimes I need these little reminders and I'm glad that I found these.
"The phrase " working mother " is redundant."
"I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once."
"Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother."
-- Lin Yutang
"To understand a mother's love, bear your own children."
-- Chinese Proverb
"Mothers reflect God's loving presence on earth."
-- William R. Webb
Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day
With little time to stop and pray
For life's been anything but calmSince
You called on me to be a mom
Running errands, matching socks
Building dreams with building blocks
Cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes
And other stuff that children lose
Gitting lids on bottled bugs
Wiping tears and giving hugs
A stack of last week's mail to read
So where's the quiet time I need?
Yet when I steal a minute, Lord
Just at the sink or ironing board
To ask the blessings of Your grace
I seen then, in my small one's face
That you have blessed me
All the while
And I stop to kiss
That precious smile
