Motherhood in a snapshot!
Last year was full of adventures just like this year is starting to blossom. We brought in the New Year with our newest addition to our growing family, Jewel Florence Bennett, who was born January 15th. Having five kids has definitely taught me that patience is a definite necessity to keeping a cool on the craziest of moments. Personally it is such a joy as a mother to see all my kids be so attentive and active with each other.
Change has never been my strength which has been something I have been having to deal with for the last three years. I feel like I have grown and matured so much from all the hurdles that we as a family have had to endure. Losing loved ones, illness, and many other struggles have really pushed us in so many directions but in the end God has brought us through all these tough times.
I have really enjoyed learning and growing from everything I have personally have had to face over the last few years. Taking one day at a time is a true benefit that most of us don’t take advantage of. I learned the hard way that stressing over things that are out of my control or are far off will only bring stress and emotionally drain me causing me to be apathetic at times.
Enjoying the time you have with your family, laughing at the funny and crazy moments, embracing the difficult and trying times, and giving your all is what life should be all about. Watching my kids play, being silly, making and discovering new things, making memories, and just being kids is what reminds me of how blessed I am. It also reminds me that I should take it all in because time doesn’t stand still, it passes so quickly. If we worry about the little stuff and stress we are going to miss out on the greatest moments that are right in front of us.
Where do I begin…society seems to be in divided tyranny. There is one major stance I take very seriously, one that many take offense to or shun because in some eyes it is not a politically correct view to take a stand for.
Recently I have seen a lot of terrible posts regarding abortion also known as Murder. Yes, I know I said the “M” word and Yes I meant it. I am saddened by the unborn babies that lose their lives daily due to the lack of responsibility and compassion for life.
Somebody has to raise a voice for those that can’t speak or stand up for themselves! We do that for our own children every single day. When you conceive a child your title as a mother and father is automatic no exceptions. Unborn babies feel, hear, and are intelligent. They are gifts from the Lord and so many take them for granted.
It is just breaking my heart….Take a Stand! Fight for the Unborn!!!
