Just another day

Yesterday was Mother's Day. But it was also just like most other days.

Eating together, hunting for small treasures at Goodwill, laughing at silly jokes, admiring artwork and creativity.

Teaching older siblings how to speak nicely to younger ones, saying no to endless begging for 'just one more Webkinz', convincing tired children that brushing their teeth before bed is, in fact, necessary.

What's that old TV show theme, "You take the good, you take the bad..."

That is what motherhood is all about: taking the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, and accepting them as what God wants for me right at that moment. Through His grace and mercy, I am able to cherish the ordinary, to grow closer to my children, and learn from the greatest Parent of all.
