I am not a big fan of e-mail forwards however when time allows I tend to glance at them to see if they are "read worthy." I received a forward yesterday from a neighbor titled Awesome Mom. It wasn't the e-mail so much that resonated with me. It was the ending statement.
(below in bold).
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.
I will leave you with this ...
May you always be overwhelmed by the Grace of God rather than by the cares of life.
Life can be overwhelming at times.
We wear so many hats.
Wife, Mommy, housekeeper, bill payer, friend, etc.
Sometimes I have so many to dos that it seems as soon as one is checked off the list another is added. My prayer for this time in my life is that I would be overwhelmed by the unfailing love and grace of God and not by the cares of this life.
My to do list will always be here tomorrow.
What brings me true joy in life may not.
