as a mother

It is an honor 
to be called Mama by Ella and Roone,
and a privilege 
spending my days living life with them.

(The beautiful newborn above is Ella in 2004,
and the handsome newborn below is Roone in 2006. 
I was astonished how alike they looked at birth.)

It is only by God giving me abundant doses of Grace, Mercy, Love and Comfort
that I feel even a smidgen adequate for this task and relationship.
How amazing that God gives me his Words in the Bible to direct me 
on this road of motherhood,
and since daily I need God's goodness to cover me,
I'll keep reading his Words!
