This Motherhood Thing

We’re 12 years into this motherhood thing, and this is not what I thought it would look like when I dreamed of being a mom. There are so many things that no one tells you about motherhood, so many moments that you wouldn’t have believed could happen even if someone had told you.

I didn’t know motherhood would include so many tears, so many moments of laughter, so many days of exhaustion, so many situations where I don’t know what to do. I didn’t know motherhood would be the best job in the world – and the worst. I didn’t know there would be days when I felt as if I was on top of the mountain – followed by days in the lowest valley.

I'm guest posting today on Mom 2 Mom Monday over at My Joy-Filled Life. Read the rest of this post by clicking here, then check out Sarah's site and leave her a comment letting her know you stopped by. I'll be back with a new post in this space tomorrow.
