Linking up with The Gypsy Mama again today for another Five Minute Friday! Five Minute Friday is an opportunity to write on a given topic for 5 minutes flat. No editing, no worries. It's so much fun! Give it a try!
The topic for today is "Motherhood Should Come With..." Here goes!
...an instruction manual, a super hero cape and a role model--someone there to cheer you on and look up to when you have questions with no apparent answers.
Motherhood should come with a prayer to utter for grace, mercy and love. And a foreshadowing of the ways in which you'll stretch, grow, stumble and fall; fall on your knees with exhaustion and frustration and fall on them again before Him in thanksgiving for the life lessons, gifts and boundless love that motherhood brings.
Motherhood should come with friends. Friends who stumble and fall right there along with you. And friends who fall before Him, too, with gratitude in their hearts. Friends to share motherhood's seasons with, and friends who help the stretching and the growing to take place.
Motherhood should come with faith, because no mother should have to go through life's joys and trials without it.
Motherhood should come with a heart full of trust, a song of hope and a dream for the future.
Wishing all of you moms out there a fabulous Mother's Day this weekend!
