I knew before I was ever pregnant with Maddy that there was a distinct calling on my life to be a homemaker and not to be working outside the home when we had children.
Neither Mason nor I knew how we would make that work financially or what sacrifices it would take.
Some days I doubt if I am really cut out to do this. I have had several of those moments recently.
Yet, on mornings like today when our Little Girl has the sniffles and just needs more “‘Sun-nels’ Mommy, ‘sun-nels’!” (translation: snuggles), I am refreshed in my drive to make it work.
to be the one to comfort our daughter
to invest in her and pray with her
to teach her the alphabet
and to kiss her scraped hand.
I am blessed to be a mother, and I am privileged to have my primary work be a nearly 2-year-old girl whose heart is at stake.
