The Privileges of Being a Mother

I found being a mother gives me many privileges…

to sloppy kisses and sticky hugs

to be the one she wants to soothe her even after I’m the one who disciplined her

to be the best boo boo kisser

to be the one she gives those first toothless grins

to be the one that she doesn’t tell she loves, because she knows without any doubt I love her

but the greatest privilege is

to pray for these little ones, whom God entrusted me with: for them, their someday husbands and children, even their in-laws.
