When you leave the hospital with your newborn baby, you are not given an instructional manual on the dos and don’ts of parenting. Becoming a mother is one of the most important titles you can hold. That title comes a lot of responsibility, pain, tears, joy, happiness, disappointments, and growth. I’m a firm believer that GOD doesn’t give us more than what we can handle.
You never know what kind of mother you will be until you become a mother. I’m a mother of four and with each child, I learned valuable lessons. My oldest child is 21 years old, and I’m still learning. I believe you are a mother until the day you take your last breath. Even if you aren’t around the lessons you give your children lives on…
Reshonda Tate Billngsley presents The Motherhood Diaries – 20+ inspirational true stories from Mothers all over the world. Reshonda shares some of her journal entries about becoming a mother. She also shares light hearted stories about her children and the life lessons she has learned. I did find myself laughing to myself in agreement.
The stories in this book covered an array of topics that mothers deal with. I applaud these Mothers for sharing their story of faith, hardship, and self-discovery. The last story I read was by Miranda Parker. As readers know Miranda (Davidae “Dee” Stewart) passed away in 2012 from heart disease. Even through death, Dee is still giving us life “gems.”
The Motherhood Diaries is a very inspirational read. I highly recommend it. This is a book you will read more than once so find a special place on your shelf for it.
