Mother's Day 2017.

Happy Mother's Day! It didn't go exactly as I hoped for me, but that's okay too. You'd think I would learn after having a couple of them under my belt, but for some reason I still naively hoped for a perfect day, so I found myself grumpy when Norah was particularly challenging. Kley and I said it was one of our hardest days yet as parents of three, but I'm so thankful we could help each other and I'm still thankful to be a mother, even on the hard days. I prayed that when I was praying with Norah after she was being naughty and I got angry, and I pray that even though I'm not a perfect mom, that I can lead them to Christ. I want my girls to know that they are so loved by their Father, and both by Kley and I, no matter what. Motherhood isn't very glamorous, but it certainly is beautiful, both in the trials and the joys. Jesus, thank you for making me a mother. I am so honored.

We got to see lots of family throughout the day, which was very special. I am so thankful for my mom and mother-in-law. I have definitely learned from the best! Their help since the twins have been born has been so valuable to us! And yes, Norah has a sticker on her forehead. Oops.






Also, I watched this video several times and cried. I love it so much. The normal things are beautiful!
