Worth Every Minute!
After attending an Easter Egg hunt with my children today near a beautiful pond in Cullomberg, Alabama (there were even real ducks floating around and a forty-foot rope-swing hanging from a mammoth Oak tree), an idea for my daily post came to mind: My precious little children that dug beneath mounds of pine cones and searched through clumps of sprouting daylilies in hopes of finding the golden egg, were the reason I wrote this book in the first place. They were the force that pushed me to the end, and inspired me to use my creativity like never before.
I love my children, of course, and I'd like to think that every mother out there feels the same way. But I don't love the idea of not being able to provide the things they need in order to live a safe, healthy, and happy life (I'm talking about healthcare, insurance, shelter, education, etc..., and NOT Nintendos, Wii games, and 4-wheelers, although I'm sure my bunch would be thrilled for the latter).
So, for them, I will ease out of the bed at 11:00 P.M. to finish the end of a chapter, or rise before daylight to begin a new one. You see, my rowdy, yet adorable munchkins are worth every minute!
