My dream Mother’s Day would be somewhere with my family where I would have no worries that Micah could run off and get lost…somewhere we all could enjoy ourselves and relax as a family without a dirty diaper or room to clean. Pure relaxation.
My family shows me they love me by allowing me to ramble, listening to me talk about randomness, and supporting me in my journey to health. I have a goal to lose weight and get healthy this year and part of that is through my running. I know this takes away from family time but I love that my family continues to support me in this.
A song that would reflect on how I feel as a mom would be “Here in This Moment” by Becka Shae. There is a part in the song that says,
I know life only because of Your love,
I just can’t breathe without You,
I’m so crazy about You,
And I know love only because of Your life,
Oh You overwhelm me with Your love.
I feel like this reflects not only my relationship with God, but also my relationship with my amazing children. I will never do anything that I can’t do without them. My life is busy and often hectic, but no matter the salary, status, or position…being a wife and Mom comes first.
