What Motherhood Means (in my humble opinion!)



Those lovely ladies over at 5 Minutes For Moms are havin' a contest. A picture could be worth a thousand BUCKS!! Who can resist a thing like that? Not this mom!
The rules go like this: Choose or take a picture that exemplifies motherhood to you and post it. Simple, right? Except for one little thing ...

A picture? One? UNO? Are they kidding?

Motherhood is many things to me, so I am posting a few and it will all culminate in the one Photo that is to be my OFFICIAL entry!
Here we go....

Everything I learned about the wonder of being a mom, I learned from the BEST mom in the world ... MINE


She taught me that being a mom is all about letting your children be who they are ...
...even if it IS a pizza eating pirate in Diego Pajamas (yep - that's my little girl!).

It's about teaching them to care for each other - and others too for that matter.

Letting them have adventures ... ... and giving them a safe place to relax when they need it.

Sharing the everyday ... ... as well as every bold new adventure.

So, pretty much it comes down to this ...

You gotta let them explore the world around them and become who God created them to be, but give them boundaries that protect them and stay a step behind to catch them - or at least pick them up and dust them off - whenever they fall... ... just love them. And lead them to the feet of the One who loved them first.

Life's an adventure ... let them find theirs!
