I’ve been a mom for almost ten years now and three times over. In my journey of momdom (yes, I made that up), each experience is uniquely different from the rest. Every time that you think you plan and prepare the best that you can, life throws you a curve ball. You might find out your iron is deficient, your skin becomes bumpy, or you have a pain in your side that won’t go away (100% speaking from experience from this last go round). What doesn’t change though, happiness.
As I type, my daughter has chosen to use my breast as a pacifier (another joy of motherhood) and I look at her and see happiness. Actually, a type of happiness that many people do not get to experience. It’s not that type of happiness you get after you’ve eaten a sweet treat like a chocolate covered pretzel or received a new charm for your Pandora bracelet. No, this happiness is on a different platform.
This happiness is the result of the journey that welcomed your child into the world. Happiness that takes you to the moon. Happiness that gives you hope. Happiness that sustains you.
We all take our blessings for granted sometimes, I know I’m guilty of this. But with three kids, a roof, and food in the fridge- I couldn’t ask for more. I’ll take my own blessings and happiness to share them with the world.
What makes you happy?
Have you “counted” your blessings lately?
