So God Made a Mother Collection ➔

I never believed in love at first sight . . . until there was a boy. 

A boy who made my heart whole the first time he looked at me. 

A boy who held my hand and touched my soul at the same time. 

A boy who challenged me and helped me grow.

A boy who showed me that, even on the worst days, the world is still a beautiful place. 

RELATED: I Met a Boy and He Changed Everything

A boy who reminded me how to laugh until tears ran down my cheeks.

A boy who tested my patience and made me better because of it.

A boy who picked me flowers and told me he loved me.

A boy who brought back the magic of seashells and sandcastles and walks along the beach.

A boy who always said “I missed you!” when we had been apart and never seemed to believe I had missed him more even though I had.

A boy who needed me but didn’t know how much I needed him too.

A boy who came into my life and changed it forever.

I never believed that love could really last forever.

Until there was a boy.

We get it.  We know how it feels to be unsure of ourselves, entering a little boy’s world for the very first time. RELATED: Mothering Boys is...

I Fell in Love With a Boy Who Calls Me Mom

In: Baby, Motherhood

I fell in love with a boy. And that moment I first saw him? I was done. Completely enamored. Entirely devoted. I’d never been more certain. More determined. More terrified that I wouldn’t be everything he needed me to be. And I knew it wouldn’t be easy. I knew we’d have our ups and downs. Highs and lows. But I knew we were meant for each other. Made for each other. That every hard and messy and exhausting and frustrating moment would be worth it. Because this was how it was always meant to be. That we’d get through it...

He knew you would need to be able to run wild and free and to have someone there who could handle your fearless nature even if she was a little bit scared. Someone who would be willing to pull over on the side of the road just to look at tractors and diggers and cement mixers.  So God made a boy mom. He knew you needed someone who would spend her time trying to find the balance between teaching you how to be strong and brave but also reminding you that you can be sensitive and kind, too. So God...
