Mother's Day!

I feel like one very blessed Momma Bear!! When I was a little girl..I didn't play with dolls! I didn't coo over babies! I didn't particularly enjoy babysitting. I never had this overwhelming desire to mother. I could be considered a little cold. I held my feelings all on the inside. Nurturing was not my number one quality. I remember feeling very career minded. I was going to change the world {sigh}. While in High school I was going to work for the FBI.. A field agent.. Something fast paced and exciting! Once married.. I was leaning towards marriage and family therapy. I am fascinated with relationships and the way people can work together to create something beautiful. But once these babies started coming into our home.. There was no question. I knew without a doubt I was going to be first and foremost a MOTHER!

I know there is a miraculous plan. I am baffled when I try to comprehend the details. I believe that Heavenly Father is there. Somewhere. And sometimes he is in every last detail of our lives.. guiding us. And sometimes he lets us make our own decisions. {Big decisions} The decision to mother.. and mother 5 .. and mother these children somewhat close together was definitely directly inspired from up above. While I wouldn't change it for the world, I would have NEVER planned my life this way. I am grateful every day. Grateful for giggles. Grateful for tears. Grateful for hugs. Grateful for adventures. Grateful for interesting conversations. Grateful to train.. nurture.. teach and learn. Grateful to be a MOTHER!
