I never knew that mothering full time would be so fulfilling, but so draining at the same time.
I never knew that loving someone could be so easy, but so hard at the same time.
I never knew that staying at home could give me so much time and freedom, but so little time and freedom.
I never knew that I could laugh and smile so much.
I never knew that I could give up so much, and yet regret is so little.
I never knew that I could glimpse God so much in the face of my little children and be reminded daily of His awesome love for me through them.
(Thanks to my friend Liz for all these awesome pictures. They were taken at a yearly bonfire that our church has on All Saints Sunday)
