The Highs and Lows of Motherhood

(Originally published by Nattie on September 01, 2003)
Low ~ Watching your son poke his sister for no reason other than he wanted her cereal.
Low ~ Watching him hit his sister for the same ol’ reason (even after punishment and being reprimanded!).
Low ~ Getting hit by a nerf football thrown by your son.
High ~ Getting kisses (yes, more than one–I kept saying it still hurt. You’ve got to get those kisses from little boys while you can!) on your arm where you were hit by a nerf football.

Low ~ Making your son cry when you break his nerf football on accident.
High ~ Folding laundry and having a little helper without even asking.
Low ~ Scaring your son when you say you are going to lie down and “die.” (I hadn’t slept well the night before)
High ~ Having your son say, “I don’t want you to die.”
High ~ Having your son baby you and fix you a sandwich.
High ~ Having your son put a mustard smiley face on your sandwich.
High ~ Having both your son and daughter lie down in bed with you because they want to be close to you.
Some days there are more highs than lows. Thankfully today was one of those days. *crossing fingers* Then again it isn’t over yet.
“God grant me the serenity to accept that which I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference, living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time, accepting hardship as a pathway to peace; taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that You will make all things right if I surrender to Your will, so that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with You forever in the next.” – Reinhold Niebuhr
