Being a mom has so many job titles connected to it. Here are just a few things a mom does...incubator, nurturer, nurse, counselor, nutritionist, care giver, diaper changer, maid, cook, taxi, school teacher, religious teacher and SO many more things. Just having 1 of these jobs is a lot of work, to have ALL of them and SO MUCH MORE is exhausting sometimes. With that there are also some of the most AMAZING moments of your life. I remember bringing all 3 of my beautiful children into this life. It was HARD but SO SO SO worth it. I have learned in my short life that anything worth having you have to work hard for! This is VERY much the case as a mother. You don't get paid with the money you deserve for your many "jobs" you have but you get paid with growth and character. I have a strong belief in God and I believe that he is ALWAYS right next to me in each "job". I believe he has faith in me as a mother and that he sent each of my children to me to be their mother. There are days were I think I wish he didn't have so much faith in me because I am doubting myself. Tonight and the past few days have been difficult for me for many different reasons. Because of these struggles I started doubting myself as a person and as a mother. I felt very vulnerable and I didn't like that (and still don't) but I figure that because it is hard now it must mean that something AMAZING must be coming! I pray that I will be strong and stay close to my God to give me strength. The reason that I type this now is to have as part of my journal. I believe that I learn each day as I read or hear of others experiences and I hope that this can possible do this for someone else.
