Undeserving Queen

"I'm going to teach our son(s) how to treat you like a queen." Yes, these undeserving words came from my sweet husband. He is excited and adamant that Silas, and any future sons, know how to treat their mama like a queen, which will hopefully translate to all of their female relationships. While it may seem like I hit the jackpot with a partner, it's really God's way of growing me as a wife and mother too.


I was asked recently the biggest change (besides the obvious ones) in my life since having a baby. I thought, and quickly said, "humility". Over and over I am humbled by God since becoming a mommy. When I think I know everything, Silas soon proves me wrong. I actually have the audacity to get angry at my helping husband when I'm tired and he doesn't help the "way I want." Am I starting to sound absolutely awful? I catch myself protectively tightening when other incoming arms are taking my son. What has happened to me to turn me into a ridiculous monster?  Motherhood happened.
Instead of allowing myself to roll down these prideful, and worrisome track, I turn to Christ in humility and thank Him for being in ultimate control of my family's lives.

Thank you for a husband of 2 years that made me breakfast in bed 2 times in the past 2 weeks: our 2 year anniversary and my first Mother's day! I love you baby.

Thank you for so many who have visited, brought meals, and prayed for us this past month! We are truly thankful for each one of you!


Thank you for a beautiful boy who is just like his daddy: a great eater and sleeper!


Thank you Morgan for an amazing gift of this photo shoot!

Thank you for yummy coffee I just drank this morning. :)
I am truly undeserving, and so thankful!
