We each have our own seasons - a time to be a student, time to be a new bride, a time to be a mother, a time to have a career and/or a time to share the accumulation of our life's knowledge with others.
With these seasons, we are also given choices to make. We can fully embrace each season for what it offers us, enjoying each moment so that when the season passes we have no regrets. Or we can try to overlap each season, trying to appreciate all these joys at once, only to find we can't adequately keep up with any of them, and greatly increasing our stress in the process.
If you are in the season that calls you to motherhood, focus on that season. Embrace all that your child is, and all that God is calling you to be as a mother.
By surrendering to God and your motherhood, you will call into play all the gifts, intelligence, and creativity with which God has blessed you. By savoring this season, you will find peace, a joy, and a level of self-discovery that simply cannot be found in the workaday world.
