These Precious Moments

Being a mom, I become easily immersed in my role as a mother.  It defines who I am now to my inner core.  I cannot imagine life without my children and when I think back about life before them...I don't understand how we didn't have them.  My children are so precious to me.  During daily life and its struggles sometimes its easy to forget how blessed I am to just have them.  Life is busy.  Being a mom is busy.  I'm taking the kids to school, to the library, to the park, to play dates.  I'm planning meals, grocery shopping, cleaning, couponing, yard work, and even homeschooling.  My mind is busy.  I question everything, whether I got angry to quickly, if I should've put a hat on them,  whether they should really have that Publix Cookie.  And then in a sudden moment, I see Caleb struggling to make friends at a play date and I see something in him that I sometimes forget.  I see his humanity.  I see him hurt and scared and sweet.  I see his heart at its very core and it makes my heart swell.  There are times, like these, that seem so small and I'm sure I won't remember.  But I hope I do.  Because I love these moments.  Caleb is an unbelievable child that is only so great because God created him.  God gave me an amazing little boy.  He's so amazing that I get used to it, that I forget how amazing he really is.  I'm so proud of him, so very proud.  I love him more than I ever thought I could, I love both my children so much that I don't know how I could love them more.  Yet each day, I do.  I'm so blessed to be their mom.
