Yes, being a mom is hard work and there are going to be quite a few bad days being that I am a mom of two toddlers, but sometimes I need to be reminded to stop and smell the roses. I need to focus on the positive aspects of my wild toddlers and appreciate the fact that God has even blessed me with them. There are way too many women out there who are aching, begging, pleading with God to be in my shoes; it would be the biggest blessing to them to sit in traffic for two hours with a whiny toddler in the backseat. In that moment they would thank God for blessing them with that precious healthy baby after years of being unable to conceive.
I got the message loud and clear and I have looked at my babies through different eyes for the past few weeks. It has not changed the fact that I still have to deal with whining, punishing, and changing smelly poop diapers but now along with noticing those things, I notice how often Noah asks to pray for people, how Maia just likes to cuddle with me and give me kisses, and how the two of them like to make each other laugh.
So it turns out that a big serving of Humble Pie was just what I needed even though I didn't know I needed it. It's funny how that seems to be a theme in my life right now: God giving me things that I really need even though I am oblivious to my need.
P.S. I really would like to thank the server of the pie as well. You have no idea how much this changed me! Love ya!
