"Just a mommy"...

My mom just recently found this little book from when I was in the 1st grade. 
My mom said when anyone asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would always say "Just a mommy!" She wrote that under my "art" so I would remember.

"Just a mommy". Even in the 1st grade I had no question of what I wanted to be when I grew up, a mommy. Little did I know in the second grade, that even at 31, my deepest desire in life would be the same, to be "Just a mommy". I can remember being a little girl. I was always a "girlie girl", those of you that know me know things haven't changed! I loved dresses and lace and pink, but most importantly I loved babies. I loved babies of any kind, real ones, fake ones, big ones, and tiny ones. I can always remember wanting to hold and feed babies, and again, those of you that know me know that nothing has changed. 

I know God has a plan, I know he wants for me to be "Just a mommy" some day. I hope I am close to that time, I believe I am. I long for the day that my baby looks up with their big brown eyes and says "I love you mommy".  Until that day, I will wait. Wait on the Lord, for His timing is perfect...


  1. I too hope for the day....I too always said the same thing..I just want to be a hurts to want something so bad. I'll be a stepmom soon which warms my heart because I've grown to love her so much but I still ache for that one day that never comes. I love your blog. I'm glad I'm not alone but I honestly wish no one else ever had to feel this way.
