The best job in the world is being a mother. I can't explain the feeling of having life inside your very body, feeling your child grow and move. It's incredible! The feeling when that little one finally makes his way into the world and you finally see that beautiful face, feel those tiny fingers and hold your newborn close to your heart, knowing that you would do anything for this brand new life. I have been blessed three times with the gift of birth, Michael, Joshua and Kristen. I would not trade each experience for anything in the world. Through all the difficulties have been joys unspeakable. One of my favorite things is watching them sleep, praying over them as they sleep peacefully, unaware of the many petitions I made for them. My God holds them in His hands and loves them even more than I do! Hard to imagine! I can only love in my human frailty, but He loves in perfection. More than anything I can imagine or hope is that my Josh and Kristen will truly know Him, experience His faithfulness and live for Him. This is my mother's day wish.
