Mother's Day

A week ago was Mother's Day, and while we kept the day pretty low key, I relished in the fact that I am a mother. Having children is something that I have always wanted to experience in life. I love being a part of a big loving family, and I have always wanted that for myself with my own family. Actually becoming a parent was beyond anything I could have imagined. It is hard to articulate the love a parent has for their child. You have a love you have never felt before and because of that everything now scares you, it is overwhelming and so incredibly joyful.

Joy has been my word to describe parenthood... I am just so full of joy. I am so happy right now, and how could I not be? I am a mother to a lively, happy, sweet and adorable little girl. I am the luckiest, and our days are full of so much joy. I find such satisfaction in caring for her, serving her, helping her learn. It is true what they say, her happiness is my happiness. 

Life is good, God is good.
