A WONDERFUL THING
Been having the winter blahs! So depressing! I'm soooo needing some warmer weather about now! I sprained my ankle yesterday morning, and in the midst of school, ball games and my complaining (in my heart) I was reminded that I AM on a mission.
Read this yesterday and it blessed my heart. If you're a mom, I hope it will bless yours too!
Being a mother is a wonderful thing,
My bedside alarm, it never need ring,
I'm awakened each day with bright cheerful faces (except for my middle schooler)
And soon 'round the table they've all taken places
Our meal is seasoned with plenty of chatter,
The fruit and the muffins fly from the platter,
There are stories to share and a Bible verse too,
We "sometimes" pray _ it's not always a zoo.
The day is so full of a number of things,
Chores, then schoolwork, then ball practicings.
Cooking and cleaning and book-reading too,
A mom of many children has plenty to do
I've heard busy times end as quick as they start,
So I'll treasure these days, store them up in my heart,
Small children grow up - the time goes so fast,
The business of mothering soon will be past
Be cheerful (STEPHANIE) and thankful each day that you've got,
Greater joy anywhere, there surely is not,
As you work through your duties may God hear you sing,
'Cause being a mother is a wonderful thing
