It’s made me drag myself out of bed on a rainy Saturday morning to drive my daughter to a volunteer event at school.
It’s made me spend time and money in a counselors office to enhance my marriage and motherhood.
It’s made me give away my last piece of pie, my last French fry, the last of the milk in the jug.
It’s made me drive fast and slow, reckless and extra careful.
It’s made me ask God to take a suffering person who was precious to me and broken my heart when He did what I asked.
It’s made me stay awake when I was too tired, keep walking when my feet hurt, and open my arms when I’d rather be alone.
It’s made me braver than I ever thought I’d be able to be and it’s made me the biggest coward on the face of the earth.
It’s made my cry tears of sorrow and just as many tears of joy.
It’s made me cook and made me eat, made me go out and made me stay in.
It’s made me give everything my body and mind have to offer and more.
It’s been my lowest low and highest high.
And this was all in the past week!!!
It’s a crazy little thing called love and I’m grateful tonight to have a life full of the stuff.by
