Mother’s Day is this weekend so Happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful mom and all of you moms out there!

A few years ago (Actually, it’s been seven years already!) my sister-in-law was expecting her first baby and I got to give her a baby shower.  I gave a short devotion and then, just for fun, shared this top 10 list that I wrote for that day.  Enjoy!

Top 10 Reasons Why It’s Great to be a Mom

10.  Colorful plastic furniture is so cool!

9.  You always wondered how many days you could go without sleeping.  Now you know.

8.  No one wants to go shopping alone.  Now you have a helper everywhere you go!

7.  It’s nice to have someone to talk to you…constantly.

6.  We love to read.  Now we get to read lots of books – books like “Goodnight Moon” over and over and over.

5.  Dandelions look so pretty in a vase on the kitchen table.

4.  Everyone loves a challenge.  Can you feed a baby, make a toddler’s owie all better, keep another child from climbing the bookshelf, read to a preschooler, answer questions like “Mommy, do worms have tongues?” and “Mom, can I have a MySpace?” and cook dinner – all at the same time?

3.  Life would be way too boring without neighbor kids and friends playing and hanging out in your home all the time.

2.  There is nothing like watching your child decide that they want Jesus to be their best friend and they ask Jesus to come and live in their heart.

1.  You get to watch your child grow and rock this world with the love of Jesus that they know because of you.
