Being a mom

 Being a mom is my greatest JOY... it's also my greatest anxiety greatest stress greatest source of guilt .... haha... needless to say it all comes with the territory.

 Being a mom to daughters... is SOOOO much fun!! and emotional and challenging and wearing and exhausting and fulfilling in so many ways! I LOVE love love having daughters!
 Being a single mom... is exhausting, tiring, stressful, rewarding, hard, amazing at times, and I have never been happier as a mom...weird to say but I am a happier person = happier mom!
Being a mom in today's society... its so hard so challenging can be fearful at times and daunting even.... but I have built a community around me and the girls and we have great support and I know there are wonderful people in my girls lives that love them unconditionally, support them unconditionally and speak into their lives. I LOVE community living.

Being a mom to a girls who are growing into little women... is truly amazing, a huge responsibility and I am in constant awe of who my girls are becoming! I love watching them become young women. I love spending time with them, they make me laugh, they make me think things in new ways, they inspire me, they make me proud.... so very very proud!

 Being a mom who is going into surgery tomorrow is a little scary just in the fact that I have not had to really face stuff like that single before and the responsibility I carry is wearing on me tonight. I know it's a regular procedure. I know I will be fine and don't react to general anesthetic... I will be fine and hopefully this will take care of the issues I have had for the past year. I do worry though. I do feel the fear trying to leech on and so far I am doing an ok job at keeping it at bay. So when I have thought about tomorrow and the little fear bugs I am fighting I thought why not say how I feel ?... there is never a bad time to leave another message to my amazing beautiful daughters how much I love them, how much I love being their mom and how they are the reason I get up every day and why I have fought so hard to return to who I was created to be and to be the best example of a Godly Woman who lives up to her full potential and that no matter what life throws at you there is always a reason to stand up fight back and grow!

Being a mom is everything to me
 Being a mom is who I was created to be
Being a mom is worth every stretch mark grey hair and wrinkle
Being my girls mom... is priceless!!

What a beautiful post... you are such a wonderful mom and your girls are precious.

I'm so sorry you have to have surgery... I hope it goes well. Please honestly let me know if I can help in any way. I've been meaning to reach out to you and suggest we go for coffee or something... but let me know if there's anything else I can do to help while you recover.

Praying!

Talk soon
