I have a good friend who is the mother of 6 children. She shared with me some of her feelings about her role as a woman and I loved it and wanted to share, with her permission:).
"Just today someone stopped me in disbelief and said, "are all those children yours"?! To which I enthusiastically said, "Yes! Thank goodness they are, and we have two more at home!" "Six?!" the guy said. Then he just smiled and went on his way. I LOVE being a mom. I love being married and being a wife and caring for my husband. And I love having friends who feel the same way- we gotta stick together, us homemakers. The world is trying to make us a thing of the past, but I will spend all my time and energy making sure I set the example for my daughters to pick up the torch and follow me into womanhood and rejoice in their roles as well. I hope deeply they want to follow. It was thrilling and humbling to me when my Anna had an "All About Me" poster to do for school and when it asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she wrote two simple words "a mom". I love that Rachel, who is two, brings her stroller with her about town and pushes her baby on our errands and lovingly checks on her and makes sure she is ok. And I think one of the sweetest feelings in the world is holding a child in your arms, feeling their warmth, their love and their trust. What a sacred role we have been given!"
I couldn't agree more! If any of you reading this have any mommy/womanly moments you want to share, I would love it! Please comment and then I'll post it!
