Thoughts I wrote down on May 12, 2006
Just a few of the simple joys of being a momy.
I love being a momy! This list can and would get very long, so
I'll just list a few. To start, the joy and happiness of knowing
a new life is being formed in secret. Then hearing the baby's
heartbeat for the first time and feeling the first squirms and kicks.
The joy of hearing a newborn's first cry, then watching them grow and
discover new things. The joy on their face when they see momy
come and get them when they awaken from their sleep. Their fist laughs
or giggles, first words and first steps.
The joy on their faces when they bring in a bouquet of flowers picked
with love just for mommy. Hearing the words “I love you, mommy”
or receivng handwritten notes like the one I was given this morning by
my five year old daughter saying, Dear Mommy” with a hand drawn picture
of two stick people, one was my daughter and one was me!
The joys of hearing children's laughter at play or seeing them working
with their daddy. Listening to them sing praises to the Lord.
Reading to them Bible stories and teaching them the ways of the Lord.
The joys of seeing them tucked into their cozy little beds at night
after a busy day of work and play. Also knowing they feel safe
and secure in our home and in our love.
The joys in hearing them read their first words and helping them learn
new things and discovering all that the Lord has given us. These
are just a few of the many joys of being a mommy. I am so
thankful to the Lord for allowing me to be a mommy to four beautiful
children, precious and priceless gifts from the Lord.
May the Lord bless all of us mommies as we strive to raise our children for Him.
This is the sweet note from my daughter.
