Why Do You Love Being a Mom?

4 years ago

It can be easy to complain about our kids or to talk about how much we need a break from our parenting responsibilities. Real easy.

I could probably rattle off my top five kid complaints pretty quickly. (I'm not going to do that right now, however, because I'm writing a blog entitled, "Why We Love Being Moms"…

Can we just as readily list the reasons why we love being moms? Well, let's see!

Here are the first 5 reasons that come to my mind:

  • The sprint to the door and associated scream of "Mommy's home!" when I walk in the house.
  • Full body hugs from 4-year-old Jake.
  • "I love you Mommy."
  • The smirk on 6-year-old McKenzie's face when she decides she's got it all figured out.
  • Walking down the sidewalk with a small hand in each of mine.

And, I could keep going! It took me a bit to get going. Yet, once I did, many moments of joy sprung into my mind. And many from just this past week!

Being a mom is a special responsibility and an unequaled blessing.
