Rare, very rare

So, I have had two of the most incredible mommy days in a row. After a wonderful day yesterday with the family, outside, pizza rolls for dinner (huge hit with kids because I usually only consider them a junky snack), and fresh strawberries with cool whip... I barely heard it... but there it was... my little boy reclined on the couch... showered... pjs... waiting for everyone to gather for nightly prayer... huge content sigh... and he says, "I am so happy!" I felt my heart leap in my chest.

Then tonight, Savannah and Christian went to youth night. Me and Ty went to his baseball practice. We picked up the big kids and lo and behold a huge spiritual conversation with all 3 kids ALL the way home. You know the type of conversation you dream of having with the little people you adore most in the whole world. Where they are totally engaged, asking the questions, gushing with testimonies, blessings realized. As if this wasn't wonderful enough... we got home, settled in beds, and one of my children quietly called my name and asked me to come sit with them. I just spent the last while in deep conversation, being a mom - have I mentioned lately how dearly I love being a mom, and having my child need me and the Spirit was so very strong with us. I just had to document these two wonderful days. I'm so grateful for these moments, truly grateful! I don't know if my tears are ready to stop, nor my heart ready to calm, but I want to go right to bed and have sweet dreams. Looking forward to a wonderful Thursday!!

it is pretty cool how the Lord gives us those moments to help us get through the not so good times of being a Mom. It is so good to be reminded of what being a Mom or Dad is really all about and how precious a soul is in the sight of the Lord, epecially when it is your child or grand child.

Those are the days you see a glimpse of the fruit of your labors and that's what makes it all worth it!

Awesome! I know you must have felt wonderful after that! Its times like those that help you realize how special being a mom is and how important the sacrifices you make are! I can't wait to have those moments with Taylor, but for now, just receiving a kiss without me asking for it makes my day! ;-)
