Thankful to be called "Mom."

I am so incredibly thankful to be a mother.

There is nothing more fulfilling in my life than the responsibility and blessing God has given me in my children.

I'm thankful for sets of three.  :)

I "try" to be thankful for dirty dishes, mounds of laundry, and tiny toys that are constantly wounding the bottoms of my bare feet!  :P

It's all worth it.  :)

I love watching them learn and grow.  I love watching how their personalities are so different from one another... individual, little combinations of my husband and myself... and so many other members of their family... all summed up to make three, very unique individuals.  I love how they interact with one another (most of the time).  I love to watch them play.  Their imaginations are so big!

I'm thankful for tiny fingers and toes that will grow into the hands and feet of strong, young men.  My prayer is that I will teach them well.... that they will follow God's plan for their lives... even if it may not match the ideas of my own.  :(  Even on the hard days, it is an absolute joy to be their mamma.
