Are You Glad to be a Mom?

My daughter recently asked me, "Are you glad you're a mom?" After assuring her that I was, I asked her if she thought I was glad to be a mom. "Well, sometimes when you're playing with us, I think you are," she replied, "but other times I'm not as sure." Ouch! My goal for this year was joy, but maybe I slipped up a bit.

Being a mom is one of the best things that ever happened to me, but if that belief doesn't translate into my actions, my kids will never know it. I want the Lord to help me to do every task through my day with a joyful attitude.

What about you? How do you let your kids know you love being their mom?


  1. I am so glad to be a Mom. I also have to remember that even when dd is pestering me endlessly that I am so lucky to have her. There are days that we forget.

    Just gave her an extra hug and kiss.

    God Bless

  2. Love it, Amy! I'm snuggling with one of my little early birds right now.
