One does not enter motherhood on a trial basis. Once you start down that road, there is no turning back.
I always knew I wanted to be a mother. I guess it was – is – one of my highest earthly goals. Taking care of my younger siblings growing up helped prepare me a bit for what to expect. But it’s still a huge commitment, a life-changing step to become a mom.
So, what if there was a trial-period? What if the last three years were just a lark to see how I liked being a mom? An opportunity for me to decide whether it was worth my time and effort? What would I say?
It’s what I was made to do, and I love it. Especially moments like the one pictured above – my two kids seem to love eachother as much as I love them, and seeing them close like this makes my heart almost burst. I like. I love. Thanks, God.
