Two Years Ago

I am not the same person I was a little over 2 years ago.

OK I know what your thinking..."Who Is"?

Two years ago I would have never gave it a second thought to lay down $60+ for that "perfect pair of jeans" (Although if you ever do find that "perfect pair" it will change your fashion life) instead of thinking of all of the little person cloths that I can buy with that money.

Two years ago I would have not been very happy having to wake up in the middle of the night just because someone needed me....I mean how dare someone interrupt my sleep?

Two years ago I could have cared less if the dishes were washed as long as I had something to eat on, the laundry was clean as long as what I wanted to wear the next day was clean, and I never understood why it made my Mom mad that my room was a constant mess, I mean it was my room what did she care?

Two years ago I thought that my friend Brandi was crazy when she would tell me that she was "exhausted"....all she done was stay home all day with then three children, how hard could that be?

Two years ago I never imagined that I would be wiping poop, wiping snot, and finding out that there are smells that come from little bodies that can make a sanitation worker gag! AND love every minute of it, what on earth am I glutten for punishment?

Two years ago I had not met Angie, Pete, Jennifer, or Adam, and Aimee and I didn't know that people can walk through the flames of hell and come out on the other side praising God. Because I didn't talk to God unless I needed something.

Two years ago it would have never touched my heart the way it did yesterday when my Mom gave me a new Bible for Mothers Day, because two years ago it was "just another Bible" that I didn't have the time, or desire to open.

To put it simply two years ago I was a selfish, lazy, and completely self absorbed person. All I worried about was me and what made me happy. And at that time my relationship with God was not a good one on my part. That's not only how being a Mother has changed me, but is is also how God has changed me!! Because you see, God chose ME to be Zachary's mother.

He knows there will be days when I make mistakes, and say or do the wrong thing, but he still decided that I was the best person for the job. That is a humbling thought! Have you ever thought of it that way? That God thought YOU were the best person in the entire world to be given the responsibility of raising YOUR children? WOW!

I want to know how Motherhood has changed your life. Mothers Day is next Sunday and in the spirit of Mothers Day tell me how you have changed!
