I recently heard having children is Exhausting Blessings. Oh boy! I could not agree more! Especially when they are young. (or at least that is my opinion because I haven’t experienced any other stage yet except for almost 6yrs & under! HA!)
Everyday I am amazed at how blessed I am by three beautiful boys. They are healthy, smart, adorable, funny, and oh-so-the little clones of their father! From the moment I held my first born son in my arms, I knew that being a mommy was going to be one of the great adventures of my life!
It has been an amazing adventure so far. So many laughs, and smiles, and silliness, excitement, joy, and love. But, I had absolutely NO idea how exhausting it would be! (Or just how many diapers!) Life is not always smiles, giggles, rainbows and lollipops. No, it is dirty clothes, and dishes, diapers, laundry, fits of tears and frustration, and well, kind of chaos and energy all thrown into a blender and thrown up all over my house! (How’s that for a description?)
When people ask me what it’s like to have three little boys in my house, I tell them one word. INTENSE! We play hard, laugh hard, get in trouble just as hard!
If you have children (or thinking about children, or had children, or wherever your thoughts may be…) you know that these little “Exhausting Blessings” are worth every moment. (Even the ones at 2 am.)
I am writing this, mostly for me. A reminder that I need every other day at times. But, a good reminder that my children are my gift from a really great God. I am the one that gets to show them Jesus love. I am the one that gets to get the wet, sloppy kisses and the rough hugs that knock me over. I’m a little tired right now. But I am my heart is not. And I hope my heart will never be tired of my little Exhausting Blessings.
