How quickly tiny bundles of joy grow! How fleeting are the lives we live! How ungrateful we are in times of stress for the blessings of little ones!
As a mother, many of us tire of the thankless hours and sheer amount of work that comes with motherhood. I, however, treasure all my sleepless nights, my cleaning of vomit and my endless loads of laundry all for....the smiles and memories that I make with my precious children!
I can't help but think what fools are they who intentionally refuse these sweet and precious blessings called children! There is no trial, hardship or everyday drugery that I would trade for an empty (or less empty) house and deafening quiet!
