Mommyhood is made up of moments.

A mommy moment as I like to call it, can last a few seconds or a few minutes and they can switch from one moment to the next in a blink of an eye.
Imagine, the hard moments, the moments that you pray will someday make you stronger. The moments that make you want to close your eyes and imagine what it would be like to jump on the nearest Amtrak and just go…somewhere…anywhere, but you don’t have time to close your eyes and imagine because one is pulling the others hair and then there is just food…everywhere that you, mommy, gets to clean up.  So, you don’ t have the time to imagine what it would be like to start a new life in DisneyWorld, but then….a moment hits, a beautiful moment where she pulls her hair then says sorry and gives her a kiss on the top of her head, without you telling her too. Moments like these make you realize you could never truly leave because you just might possibly miss…something.
Think of the moment you see your baby for the first time and you know that with God’s help you and your husband created this beautiful life that you hold in your arms. The first moment your baby smiles, coos, holds their head up, rolls over, sits up, stands up, walks, says mama and that day you start seeing the sparkle in their eyes when their imagination shines.
There are a lot of the moments that make you want to leave, but the few moments you get during the day that make you feel invincible are the only ones that truly matter. Those are the moments you’ll remember when your baby is grown, when your baby is moving out, getting married and holding their own precious baby in their arms. As you look in your grandchild’s eyes, it’s in those moments, you’ll say to yourself….now it’s your turn, little one…it’s your turn to give your mommy, my baby, those incredibly hard and incredibly wonderful moments.
