My Life in Photos

I am so enjoying taking photos this month.  Everyday moments that are seemingly small and mundane...but all of these moments add up to be a big and fulfilling life for me.

In the past year I have gotten increasingly settled in to this whole motherhood thing (yes, I should have a long time ago? I do have 6 children!)  All is grace though.  More and more each day God is giving me a greater heart and love and acceptance of having all these children.  The messes don't make me cringe as much.  The reading-aloud isn't draining me as much.  The constant talking and chatter isn't making me nuts as much. I am embracing more and more the brokenness yet beauty of it all. And that can only be attributed to God in my life!

I've read Cutting For Stone. It's really good! Isn't it strange that sometimes it takes so long to embrace motherhood? I found that with every child, I'd yield a little more each time. Of course, there were the inevitable steps back. I still find there are times when I'm tired of it all, and I just want to be left ALONE. But if that really happened, I'd be devastated.
