Thought of the day: You just do it!

I love this pic, it is how I feel most days!

Ok so I had a thought of the day. I have many thoughts many days but none I can remember 10 minutes later or none significant enough that I feel compelled to right down. Although this post may take me all day it is something that I want to remember.

So we hear many comments when we are out and about with the triplets. One we hear all the time is, "How do you do it?" My simple response is, "You just do it!" Just like anything in life. Has anyone ever wondered how you work full time and attend school. How you have a family and go back to get your Masters, or how you deal with 3 or 4 kids on a daily basis. Well you just do it! We all have our mountains to climb, our marathons to run, this is ours. A year ago this week I was given 2 eggs in my womb and just prayed that one would survive to create a baby that we have prayed for, for 9 years. Now we never could have thought that both would take and one would split but that's what heappened. Tomorrow is National Prayer Day and it is on this day last year that I was given these 3 sweet babies. Was I shocked and scared, absolutely. Have I been over whelmed at times, oh yea! Have my prayers been answered, no doubt! Many of us pray for things all the time. Now I can't say that God gave me exactly what I prayed for because truth be told, I never prayed for triplets. I would say he gave me more, lots more. Every morning I get up and walk over to each one of them as they are waking up and as they look up, smile and giggle my heart melts. When I'm washing dishes and then realize it's quiet so I look over to the babies and notice that I have 6 eyes all staring at me, I just laugh. Now did I grow up telling myself all I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a mama. No, I actually wanted to be Murphy Brown. I wanted to travel around the world interviewing great leaders. A journalist. Of course I no longer want to be Murphy Brown I just want to be the best Serena that I can. A huge part of me is now I am a mama to 4 boys but I'm not just a mom, or a MOST (mom of supertwins), I like to think I'm much more. One of my own personal fears was the thought of losing myself and how I saw myself before the triplets were here. What I have come to realize is that it is actually the opposite. One position in life does not define you. Throughout life we all change and how we perceive ourselves changes as well. I do not want to be defined by one thing. So no matter how many hats I wear I just always tell myself that although it's crazy and hectic, and most days I'm sure I'll hear mom more than my actual name, it's always worth it. Like I said before and with anything challenging, you just do it!
