Being the mom of two littles so close in age can be really challenging some days. There are times when I’m exhausted, touched out, and really want nothing more than an hour of complete quiet, or at least a few moments where no one is asking for a snack, toy, drink or a million other things. I could go on and on about all the ways that being a mom is hard, and sometimes I do! But the truth is that all of those things just seem really small and insignificant in moments like these. The innocence and pure love that these two have for each other bring me so much joy. They make me want to be a better mom; a better person. And in the moments where I can take a step back and look at the big picture of my life, all I see is that these two are already growing up so fast. I know it will be over in a moment. So my prayer this morning is for the Lord to make me a better mom. To help me to remember these moments when the days are so so long and the nights are even longer. Because I am blessed beyond measure and I don’t ever want to lose sight of that. And because God made me the mom of these two darlings for a reason- may I glorify Him in my daily mothering of His children.
