Being a mother is a dream for most women. I never understood the magnitude of motherhood until I became one. I have had an awesome example of what being a mother should be from my mom.
Being a mom is not only great but very rewarding. There is no doubt as to extent I would go for Alexis and Olivia. It warms my heart to see them in a relationship with God. I am so proud, and grateful, of whom they have become. I am learning when to give advice and when to just listen. I miss kissing the boo boos, trying to understand their many drawings, listening to their day on our drive home from school, and, tucking them in bed just to list a few. Olivia still insists that I read her bedtime stories, cut up apples, and Alexis says his food tastes better when I take it up. I thank God every day for my countless memories.
Being a mother I wish that I can take away all their worries, pains and disappointments. My daily prayer is that God continues to keep them covered under his wings and build walls of hedges around them.
