A Newfound Contentment
stepmom living near us. I love it when they get so excited when they see their Nanas and Papas coming through the door. Even Lily is starting to screech when she sees them. It's just adorable!
Yes, mothering six children is hard work. When I had two children, I never felt this content. I was so miserable. I think I spent most of my time dreaming about how I was going to get away and have my next break. I was overwhelmed and not a very nice person to be around. God has changed me so much in this area. I do enjoy having breaks now and then, but I don't long for them and count the days until they occur. I try to enjoy each day as it comes.
I love all the different stages that my children are in. From growing boys to babies, I get to experience the whole gammet at once! It is challenging, but I have found so much reward in this new found contentedness. I am one blessed lady! I have peace and joy most of the time instead of every once in awhile. I have a good life and I want to praise God for it!
