I am sitting here watching my sweet little 4 year old sleep. She is home sick from school. She woke up in the middle of the night not feeling well, then had an upset belly this morning. I'm sure most parents feel this way when their little one's don't feel well. It's such a helpless feeling. Even though we give all the snuggles and love we can, sometimes they still feel terrible. It is heartbreaking to watch your child be in any sort of discomfort.
I sometimes find myself in such awe that God has blessed me with these three beautiful children. I am not a perfect parent but I try my best. I learn from my parental mistakes and move on. I am trying very hard to remember that God has chosen me to be their mother and that is quite humbling. Am I good enough for these girls? I don't know, but I will definitely give it my all. I will not let them or God down.
Before I had my own children I thought staying at home would be "easy." Any Mom that has chosen to stay home with her children will tell you it is not easy. It is a 24/7 job with no paid vacation. There are times when I find myself REALLY needing a few hours to myself. It is only natural to want some "quiet, alone time." Even with the days I need a break, I wouldn't change this awesome opportunity for any job. I love being able to watch my girls grow and experience their everyday with them. I am so grateful for this time. It goes by way too fast, and soon they will all be in school full time. I look forward to the next phase of parenthood as well. For now though I will enjoy playing hide and seek, dressing Barbies for the umpteenth time and reading the same book over and over.
Thank you God for trusting me to take care of these precious little girls. I am so blessed.
