A Mother’s Love

August 31, 2018

Before I had kids, I didn’t understand “a mother’s love.” I didn’t even know I was capable of being able to love someone that much or that I had SO much love to give!

Finley Cash, my first child, was my first experience as a mother. My heart was overflowing when he was born. Then, my husband and I experienced the heartbreak and fear of almost losing our child when Finley was 1.5 months old. He had a stroke—one that I feared had changed our lives. It did in a way. It made me stronger, wiser, and more mature. Finley fully recovered at 2 months old and will be 4 at the end of the year. He’s my miracle baby! 

On June 9, 2018, my precious little girl, Phoebe Wren Scott, made her entrance into the world. She surprised us all by weighing a whopping 9.5 pounds! When I found out I was expecting with Phoebe, we were so happy. I prayed for a baby girl, and He heard my prayers. She is now 3 months and is growing way to fast for this momma. It has been nothing short of sunshine and rainbows these past few months.

I can’t imagine NOT being a mother. I feel so blessed to be their mommy and to be given the opportunity to raise them in this truth. I hope to lead them in the right path and to teach them to love God with all of their hearts and to instill deep in their hearts a burning desire to live for Him. Just as I love my children with all of my heart, God loves us the same.

As a mother, I can now say that I understand how much God loves us—so much that He died for us—because I would do the same for my children.
