Motherhood

These are my babies that I love more than life itself, I will do whatever it takes to protect them.  These sweet girlies have helped me to realized that if needed I could shoot and kill someone.  Does that make me sound like a lunatic or do you get me on this one?  

I love that their whole existence depends on me, and knowing that they are happy is so rewarding, is that selfish? 
I love swinging, it makes me happy to just for a moment enjoy it.  I can't swing without forgetting everything else around me, for some reason it just makes me carefree and sort of giggly.  This how being a mother makes me feel.  Total joy and happiness.  Don't get me wrong sometimes motherly duties are hard and frustrating, but I'll take it.  

Nothing brings me more peace and purpose than to hear my girls say I love you mama.  I love when Livvy tells me I love you mommy I am never going to give you up, you are the best mommy I ever had.  Avrey was snuggling with me in bed this morning and she said brown eyes like me and same nose and lips as she was pointing to my face.  Does she realize that we really do look so much a like, or is she just getting that we are both divine creations and both have wonderful bodies?

Motherhood is a divine calling and I am so blessed to experience it.  I am doing exactly what I should be in my life right now and I am grateful.

My own mother is my perfect example and I am going to share some things about her with you tomorrow.
