Day 1...My kids

I know this seems like the easy way out. Oh I know what yeah everyone is thankful for their kids.

However sometimes I don't think I truly display the right attitude about being a momma.

How easy it is to dwell on the negative. How simple it would be to think well I don't have a choice... I have to be mom.

NO! The truth is I did have a choice. I CHOSE to be a MOM. That is the life I had wanted since I was a little person. Now I am a MOMMA TO LITTLE PEOPLE! How amazing and awesome is that? Some see it as a duty. Some see it as the 'norm'. I see it as this amazing and awesome job I get to do everyday.

I don't want to take for granted how lucky I am. I know so many mommas that don't get to spend as much time with their little ones as I do. I know so many woman who want a child of their own and I am soooo blessed to have three amazing small people AND that I get to be with them so often.

Sometimes it is hard to remember that God really gave these little ones to me. I was specifically chosen to mother Leanna, Hudson and Nolan. I never feel like I measure up or that I am "Good enough" or even half as a good as some other moms. It makes it hard to be thankful to be a mom when you feel that way. However God knows my heart. He knows the hairs upon each of my babies heads. He knew I was best for them and they were best for me.

So for Day 1 of this month long thankfulness. I am thankful for the beautiful, crazy, make mommy pull her hair out, amazing, kind, funny, sweet and ALL MINE little people!

I, too, am thankful for your kids. They're pretty awesome!

And I know, as a mom, it's good to have a right perspective of our kids - they are blessing, not a curse (though some days .... hmmmm ...). Thanks for the reminder today! :)
