I was lying on the couch listening to Mumford and Son's, watching Grace fast asleep on my lap. I was trying to schedule a bazillion things because our lives are so busy(right?), but I could only focus on how wonderful Grace was. Taking deep, beautiful breaths. Each one, so precious and peaceful.
I couldn't help but wonder where the last 7 years of my life have gone, since becoming a mother. I do not even remember a life before our children.
The beauty of a silent mind, a sleeping baby and some Mumford is that it awakes my soul. In those moments I realize my purpose in life is to be a mother above all else. God has blessed me with many talents and sometimes I forget the most beautiful of them all, is motherhood. I am so busy trying to BE great that I forget, I AM GREAT to my children.
Awake my soul.
