I don’t think that the wonder/amazement/awe of being a parent has stopped for me yet! I have a 7 year old son and a 4 year old daughter. When I enter their rooms in the mornings to wake them up for school, I sometimes just stare at them in amazement. How beautiful they are! How much they’ve changed & grown! Wondering what their futures hold!
Every age & stage they have been through has had something new & wonderful for me as a mom…from their first smiles, to their first words, first day of school…the list could go on forever!
It’s so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day stuff with work and kids, but it’s so important to take a step back once in a while and just appreciate these gifts from God!
