I am copying ths quote from Kandee Johnson who writes a few blogs, this one is from 'Kandeeland'.
She says, "I'd trade every hour of sleep, every minute of getting ready, every hot meal, every free moment to do something I want to.....to be with my babies. The greatest reward in life is not going on fancy trips with your friends, not having hours, to sleep in as late as you want, or spending as much time as you want getting ready, or going out with your friends. The moments that matter are the each heart melting, moment I get to pour love into my little ones hearts. Even each moment when I'm exhausted and I feel like I can't get anything done, and I look at my kids, and know that they are more important than the piles of laundry, the things that need to be organized or swept.
Being a mom is the greatest, most meaningful job in the world. If you look at money, the pay isn't great, but the best things in life don't have price tags. And being a mom, a mom that is willing to sacrifice her time, sleep, life, and to give her heart to her kids...is the most amazing thing you'll ever do. You may not get an award, medal, certificate or recognition, but the greatest reward is that precious little heart that you've filled with more love.
