The season of being within eyesight of a toilet.
The extra lbs around the midsection.
The huffing and puffing to pick something up.
The wait that just about sent me over the edge…but…not into labor.
The back labor.
The pushing.  Oh, the pushing.
The sleep deprivation.
The blundering mistakes.
The messy floors.
This beautiful  baby.

I’d do it all over again, just to have you!

Last year, I was a new initiate into the Mama’s club.  I felt pretty green, too.  I knew I was a part of something great, but I didn’t know enough yet to know exactly how great.  This year, I’m a little more weathered (and wrinkled and greyed), and I think I’m just beginning to understand this whole mothering thing.  I feel so honored to be a part of this club….but at the same time…I know I still have a long way to go.  Thank you so much, LORD, for helping me get here.
