Re-blogging this post I made on Facebook about seven years ago. Pretty much the same year I started mga pahina ni msbolin. Lately, I felt my kids are avoiding my wrath. I am a complete mess. God must really love me to let me stumble upon my blog entry about motherhood. It hit me real hard because, for the past few days, I thought I am doing my boys a favor by working hard to give them food, education, and toys. I felt so tired feeding, educating, and disciplining them, when in fact, I should have remained steady and calm. Despite the so many obstacles and challenges, I have my four boys to love, cherish, and care. I almost forgot that motherhood, as I lived it before, is a gift no one could appreciate until she learns to truly live it.
