Happy Mother's Day!

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.


  1. And a Happy Mother's Day to you. I have two kids, and can't imagine being able to bring up even one more.
    Eight kids? I salute you!

  2. Rayna, I always say that it isn't exponentially harder to raise a big family. The first and the third are the hardest, after that it is much easier! Thanks for stopping - I enjoyed reading your "drabble" on your blog. I read quite a few you have a gift!
