Being a parent is the hardest job I've ever had.  I absolutely love my children so much that it hurts.  They are fun and smart and handsome and they can be so amazingly sweet at times.  I feel so blessed to have them in my life.  I love being their mother.  Despite the fact that they keep my house messy, they can be very loud, and they require constant attention... and food! I have an intense desire to protect them at all costs and that is what I will do until my dying day!

I'm sure you're wondering where all of this came from and I'll explain one day.  I hate to share it all with you at this particular time because it will open the floodgates that I've tried hard to keep closed.  I wonder sometimes if I'm actually thinking rational thoughts.  I wish someone could actually just look into my brain and see what I'm thinking so I don't have to actually explain it in words.  But I know that this too shall pass and I take comfort in knowing that God will never leave my side through any and all of my trials.  So I'll turn my frown upside down and enjoy each day to the fullest!


  1. I could have written that first paragraph myself. Mothers know mothers. Hope all is ok! xoxo

  2. Shanita,

    You are a good woman. You have good intentions and work hard to fulfill them. You are overly critical of yourself - all part of Motherhood when you work hard at it. I hope you can be as good to yourself as you would be to your best friend.
