This Mother's Day was especially exciting as I am expecting another little one as we speak! My sweet husband and kids did a fabulous job of pampering me and loving on me. It always feels good to be praised. Truett Cathy always says, "If you're breathing, you need encouragement". My hubby wrote a poem about me. It seems a little boastful to post it on my own blog, but it is out of my own pride for his skills that I wanted to share it:
My Name Is W, And I Am A Mother
While the sun remains hidden, a new day I begin,
Of growing my children, into Godly women and men.
My responsibility is great in this calling I’ve received,
So heavy my daily burden, like nothing I could have ever perceived.
I’m the first to take action and the last one to rest,
To all these precious souls I give my all, my very best.
This life I’ve been called to, few others could handle or even comprehend,
No time for myself or to have lunch with a friend.
My husband adores me, sees me as superior to most,
Yet I never put on heirs, never brag, never boast.
I do more in a day than many accomplish in a week,
I forgive everyday and turn the other cheek.
I train up my children in the way they should go,
I sacrifice more for them all than they will ever know.
I’m not always popular, often seem unfair in their eyes,
But I do what is right and best for their lives.
I now carry yet another special gift from God above,
This new life inside me, whom I can’t wait to love.
Like the others, she will add to my work to be done,
As well as to this legacy of love I’ve already begun.
Though I will never be given all the thanks I am owed,
My sweet children do appreciate and love me so.
I’m a strong Godly woman, I live my life for others,
My name is W, and I am a mother.
