Yesterday I was a mother to two little boys. Yesterday I was wiping noses and changing diapers. Yesterday I was wondering if they would ever sleep through the night.
Yesterday I was praying for just five minutes of peace and quiet. Yesterday I was hoping no one would find me in the bathroom.
Yesterday I prayed for just five more minutes of sleep. Just five!
Yesterday I was tripping over toys and telling them to please come put their coats away.
Yesterday. It just seems like yesterday.
Today it is very quiet when I get up in the morning. Today there are no noses to wipe or diapers to change.
Today there is no one waking me up in the middle of the night asking for a drink of water.
Today I am a mother of two young men.
Yesterday is gone, but today is just beginning. Today is brand new, just waiting to be written. There is much to find joy in today.
"This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it." - Psalm 118:24
