Immeasurable.


It's hard for me to write with out tears. It's quiet in my home, it's late at night, and there's time to let my mind wander. Wander over the years that I have had the immeasurable blessing of becoming and growing into a mother. Words cannot express the depth that I love my children, how much I have treasured their lives - mine and theirs together. I cannot describe the miracle that takes place with in my body and soul when I have a child growing in my womb. I cannot explain how I love my children's voices when they tell me how much they love me. I cannot describe how motherhood has pushed me to the edge, exhausted me, broken me, fixed me. I cannot explain how I live for my children, that I have become every thing through them. I cannot explain the joy and yearning I feel to add on to our growing family, to experience the miracle of birth again. To my journey as a mother: the jagged one, the faltering one, the joyous one, the triumphant one, the loving one, the exhausting one.... To this journey, I want, with all my heart, to continue walking, running, leaping, crawling, each and every day of my life, with all that I am, and with all of the love I have to offer, I will and want to continue on as MOTHER.

Happy Mothers Day.

Love, Misty

Oh Misty. So, so well said. This mothering journey is indescribable at times, but the "journey" is immense in its gifts.

Happy Mother's Day, Misty

You are doing a great job at this mothering thing. My three children are grown and have given me three beautiful grandchildren with another on the way. We are all blessed. Thank God for these precious gifts. Jancd

There is nothing like being a mom. I'd give up everything if it was needed that I come back home and mother little ones. I have loved every stage. They have all had more ups than downs.
