Thank You, Father, that I ‘get to be a mama today!

I get to shape children’s hearts today

I get to be a part of who they will become

I get to snuggle and hug and tickle today

I get to pray for future men and women of God today

Yes, thank You Father that I get to be a mama today!!

Lovely! Just lovely! I was thinking about that last night - how thankful I am to be a mommy to my 3 little boys. I love their individual personalities, the fact that I have 3 strong-willed children; silly, goofy, tender-hearted twins and a feisty, not-to-messed with 15 month old. I'm so thankful that God chose me to their mommy.

Congratulations, by the way, on another grandchild on the way!

What a great reminder! It is such a priviledge and one that I absolutley LOVE and ENJOY. I want to be with my children. I take them eveywhere with me. Most don't understand but we are a family and I like my children's company. I want them with me. I GET to be their momma and I can't do that unless they are with me.

What a great post...and a great reminder that it is a privilege and high calling that God has given us. I pray that we can all embrace it with joy from the Lord. God bless you!

Yes, it is a blessing to "get" to be a momma! (And then a grandma!) (:>)

I thank God for my blessings and name them one by one!
