Tomorrow I will not cry. I will not cry. I WILL NOT CRY!!!
Tomorrow, my baby . . the youngest of my four children, turns 10. Double Digits.
So here’s the deal, I have been very intentional with counting my blessings on each stage of this parenting gig so far. And I intend to continue this way!
Just last Friday I went to a house where there were three kids, probably 5 and under. I once had 4 children, ages 4 and under in my house. It was nostalgic to walk in to the chaos, smiles, and toy-covered floor. I smiled for my own reasons, that the homeowners would never know. Then two of their children started crying; one of them throwing a huge fit. I gave them a smile again, as I assured them that I understood.
As I walked on thru the house I had another smile to myself. This smile was due to the fact that as sweet a time as that was when the kids were little, I am very thankful for where we are now. No one screams and has crocodile tears anymore because they have to put on shoes. Well . . . almost never 😉
Tonight I am counting all my blessings as a Mommy, in every stage of Mommy-hood. There will never be another single thing that I do greater in this life than to be a Mom to these four babies. They make my heart complete! ❤
