Motherhood is HARD!!!
You spend so much time raising your kids. Kids are a blessing, don't get me wrong. I love my kids. But there are times that I want to just scream at the top of my lungs and pull my hair out!
Brush your teeth....
Do your homework....
Eat your dinner, not the dogs....
Ugh! I spend so much time focusing on how I am raising them that I forget to look at what they are becoming. It seems like what they get more credit for what they don't do, than what they do do.
Then come the glimmer moments. The little moments in time that you are afforded a look at the person you are raising. It's God's little gift to you when you are at your lowest.
Yesterday I had a glimmer moment.
The little one came home from school in tears! Her whole world was just torn apart! It was the Daddy Daughter dance and her dad was out of town.
Nothing that I could do or say would console her.
....her older brother came down the stairs in a dress pants and shirt and asked if he could take her. You should have seen her face! It just lit up like a Christmas tree!
How awesome is that?! He gave up a night he could of just sat at home, playing video games with his girlfriend to make his little sister happy. It was so sweet watching them walk away holding hands. I cried for 5 minutes. They both came home smiling and laughing about the great time that they had too.
So, just when I started to doubt myself, I was given a glimmer moment to see the wonderful people I have raised.
I couldn't think of a better Valentines day gift than that.
