Happiness Is Being A Mother

Kate is the loving mother of Elyse. She is one of my sister, Lori's, best friends and I'm so glad I have been able to get to know her. We've had a few of the same struggles with motherhood [ie our children refused to nap!] so I've been able to get advice from her and I'm so grateful for that. Visit her blog here. Thanks to Kate for being here today! 

When Jen asked me to write a guest blog about what I love most about being a mother, I thought it would be easy. It’s not. In fact, it’s impossible for me to pick just one, or even a few things that I love most when being a mother is the most incredible thing I have ever experienced. What is easy to say is that the past 14 months have been the most amazing in my life and that’s because of Elyse. I literally feel giddy every time I see her. Her sweet hugs and wet kisses warm my heart and I completely melt when she smiles. I adore her small voice, her infectious laugh and yes, even her cry. There is nothing better in the world than seeing her sunny face when I walk into the room to get her up in the morning, or cuddling with her while she’s wrapped up tight in a towel just after her bath, or sitting together snuggling and reading stories. Having a child makes every day so much more special and fun, and I find myself getting sentimental over just about everything. Every moment is precious. Being a mother makes me feel full of life and abundant love and there is no greater honor or blessing.


  1. Kate, I love your post. The things you talked about made me smile because I love all of those things about motherhood too. Thank you for posting on my blog today :)

  2. You are such a natural at motherhood. You own it like no one else and I love seeing you in this new chapter in your life. Even on hard days, it's easy to remember that THESE ARE THE BEST DAYS OF OUR LIVES. Love you.

  3. Thanks! I could have gone on and on about how much I love being a mom but I started to feel like I was just babbling!
