here that nugget be.
and now, a letter to my sister.
i bet motherhood is not what you thought it would be like.
you thought you knew what tired was. and you didn't.
you thought you knew what messy was. and you didn't.
i bet you thought you knew what hungry was. no, eating a whole chocolate cake says that you did not.
now you know.
now you feel bad for all the late nights you kept mom up past your curfew. for all the times you told her you hated her. for all the times you told her, you don't understand!
but nothing worth valuing is ever that easy. nothing ever.
it will mean saying no to a lot of things. it will mean leaving some things behind. but those things you leave behind will pale in comparison to the joy you'll experience when you give up your life for a tiny human. you're learning on a deeper level what love is. this is how Jesus loved us. we have nothing to give, and YET! He still loves us. and He never gives up on us. undeserving as we are. and unable to match His love for us.
isn't it funny that you thought you knew what love was?
