Happy Mother's Day!!!

A fairytale Mother's Day:

Breakfast in bed., Children who get along all day long., A clean house., Everyone is healthy and happy., Lots of "Thanks Mom for all you do!"

My reality of a Mother's Day:

Awoke to Gavin crying, who had a HUGE dirty diaper explosion and needed serious cleaning up., No time for breakfast before church., The boys were arguing and acting goofy most of the day, as usual., Our bathroom sink was leaking and water was filling the cabinet below it., Gavin is getting sick and there were several injuries to our other boys as well!

And, You know what? I wouldn't know what to do with myself if it had gone any other way! :) Plus, I really wouldn't want it any other way! This is my life and I wouldn't change the 'job' that I have for ANY OTHER!


Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful Mommas out there!!! I hope that you enjoyed your day!!

"For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well." Psalm 139:13-14
