Being a wife and mother have been the most unexpected blessings of my life! As a wife, I get to bask in the giving and receiving of affection, love and care of my sweet husband. As a mother, I get to enjoy teaching and learning, laughing and playing with our three children every day.
Both roles were unexpected because I had no plans of marriage or children, but the Lord knew better! He knew I’d become the wife He wants me to be and that my husband I and would both be happy and in love after 16 years. He also knew I’d adore being barefoot and pregnant, figure out that natural childbirth is the way to go, cherish breastfeeding, and find pleasure in teaching our little ones at home.
I am thankful that my life turned out to be so very different than what I would have planned.
Our oldest is Maggie. She is fourteen years old and such a sweetheart! She is thoughtful and giving – always thinking about what she can do for others. She is our avid reader and writer, and hopes to be a published author someday.
Joshua is our middle child and is ten years old. He is the definition of BOY. I love how much energy and adventure he has in him! He enjoys games, anything physical like biking and sports, and snuggling on the couch with us.
Samuel is the baby of the family (for now!) at 2 years old, born in September of 2011. He is cuddly and stubborn and sweet as can be! ;)
I hope you find Atlanta Mom of Three easy to navigate and an enjoyable place to learn & share information, find motivation, and have your creativity sparked.
