In March, there will be one more little love joining our family.
I can. not. believe that I am going to be a mom to four!
I am a seriously fertile son of a gun, and for that I am so grateful, but I am also very happy to say that this will be our last baby, and Chris has had the surgery to prove it. 😉
Having said that, I feel like it is far more important to say that my children are everything to me. Not because they define me, but because they force me to define myself.
Since having Brielle, there have been so many changes in my life, and I can honestly say that they have all been for the better.
I am so grateful that I get to be a mom. It is challenging on my time, on my body, on my house, on my brain!
But it is breath-taking, it is strengthening, it is having a heart that is pounded into so many different shapes even over the course of one day.
I have made mistakes, and I do my best to say I’m sorry and change for the better. But because I have been forced to deal with my weaknesses, I have also had triumphs and breakthroughs.
I still have a long way to go, and a lot of love to give, so I think God wanted to give me one more heart beating outside my body, one more mouth to feed, to clothe, one more to kiss, one more to stretch me, one more to force me to be better than I am.
I am humbled and intimidated by the responsibility, but I know that through God everything is possible, and I can do my very best to try to give the world one more person who will make changes for the better.
One more person who is taught to care for others, and to love.
So I’m going to do my best to trust him and have faith, because I’m really going to need him.
