I Get To Be The One

edits-0011My mind is in complete denial.  I can't believe that this mother's day I will be celebrating with TWO babies.  I'm in complete shock that I'm a mama; I still can't believe it.  You'd think that the pain of giving birth to these kids, plus the demands of having two under two would really let the motherhood role sink in.

It hasn't.

I'm still so shocked that God picked me to be a mom, and to be their mother no less.  I mean, He has met me.  He knows me.  He knows my faults and my general tendency to just be a serious hot mess, and yet He still picked me to be the mother of these two precious babes.  We were matched.

I don't know what it is that I bring to these two, but God does and I trust Him.  He chose me because there is something that I get to teach them, or say to them, or in some way impact their lives.  WOW! What an honor.

What an honor to be chosen to raise these two. To love on them. To watch them grow.  To be the ear that listens.  To be their ultimate life-long cheerleader. To be their teacher.  To be their personal nurse and chauffeur.  To be their birthday party planner.  To be the president of their fan club and stage crew.  To be their tissues for all their boogers.  To tie their shoes.  To teach them right from wrong.  To demonstrate Jesus' love, grace, and forgiveness. To proudly wear their slobbery kisses.  To read them the same book 4 thousand times in one day.  To rock them to sleep as they break a fever. To kiss their boo boos.

I can't believe I get to be the one.

Thank you Jesus for these precious treasures that I've done nothing to deserve.

Dutch and Ellis, how does someone so small hold my heart so tightly?  I don’t know, but I love you completely, and I am the lucky one here.



Well hello,
Little baby.
Your eyes have never seen the sun
You should know
Little baby
That I am the lucky one
 

I get to be the one to hold your hand
I get to be the one.
Through birthdays and broken bones
I'll be there to watch you grow
I get to be the one.


 Don't feel alone now,
Little baby.
Do you hear me singing you a song
I can't wait to show you
Little baby
How to crawl
How to walk
And how to run


 I get to be the one to hold your hand
I get to be the one.
Through birthdays and broken bones
I'll be there to watch you grow
I get to be the one.


 How does someone so small
Hold my heart so tightly
I don't even know you
I love you completely


 I get to be the one to hold your hand
I get to be the one.
Through birthdays and broken bones
I'll be there to watch you grow
I get to be the one to hold your hand
I get to be the one.
Through birthdays and broken bones
I'll be there to watch you grow
I get to be the one.
