Today Marks 22 Years of Parenting
22 years! Wow, it sure does speed by! It seems like we were just bringing this little 6lb. 2oz. baby boy home to our little rent house in south Louisiana. He was a great baby and an easy child. I tease him that it's because he was so wonderful we had so many after him : )
I had tears in my eyes this morning as I realized how much I have enjoyed parenting him and just being a mother in general. I wanted to encourage all you young moms out there, that it is so very worth it! Nothing can fulfill us women like mothering and no place are we more content, valued and needed than in our homes. I'm so glad God chose to trust me with this precious child and all the others He has graciously given us. Don't give-up young moms! Don't stop praying and seeking the Lord in how you are to parent. Don't take one minute for granted. Don't be discontent raising children and desire to be out of the home working in a career, or even working in ministry or volunteer work, or doing fun things like pursuing hobbies. Each year speeds by and each memory is so very special. Love on your babies today. Kiss your toddlers. Have fun with your older children and let them know how special and important they are. Nothing compares to motherhood!
