So what does it mean to be a mommy…

It means time is relative.  You can rock a baby for hours and it will seem like minutes.  You can sit up for nights on end and it doesn’t matter anymore.  Time begins to be judged by quality instead of quantity.  And for me I never understood how to live life to the fullest until I learned how to live full time.

It means you never know when sleep or food or alone time will happen.  But it’s alright. Your soul will be nourished and that will take you further than anything else you can fill your body with.

It means understanding how to love other people unconditionally, even the ones you didn’t give birth to.  Some where someone cares about that person as much as you care for your precious ones. And somehow that makes you want to give that new person your patience too.  The world really is a village.

It means you understand there are no small sins.  Every act in the negative is just a stepping stone in the wrong direction.  Actions, thoughts, words – they all lead to something more.  Make yours count toward the side of good.

It means you know sometimes people, big and small, just need a hug.  Most naughty behavior just means someone needs either to be loved more or understand how to love better.  By giving love, you are providing the healing and being a role model.

It means sometimes to get things done you must burn the midnight oil.
