My most important job is that of Mother.
We were talking the other day about what my kids want to be when they grow up.
They asked me what I had wanted to be.
I had two choices: a religious nun in some order who wears a habit.
The habit was important to me, if I was going to give my life to Christ, I wanted to look the part.
My second choice was the momma of a big family.
Eight children to be exact.
I always figured I would have eight children.
I exceeded my own expectations.
God choose marriage and motherhood as my vocation and I am so grateful.
I am blessed to have a wonderful Mother - Mimi. A wonderful role model.
It is my hope that my children will continue to love me and want to be a part of my life.
It isn't cheap to have a large family, but it isn't exponentially more expensive or even harder than a small family.
What is exponentially more is the love and laughter, heartache and pain, blessings and graces that come with Motherhood.
Daily I thank God for Blessing my with my family.
