When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

For this workshop, I picked number one.  You know you're a mother when.....

My life has taught me many things, one of the most precious is that of motherhood.  I think that you know you are a mother when... 
You are willing to go without things for yourself, so that your children may have things they need.  
You are willing to go without sleep so that you can rock your little one and calm them in the middle of the night.  
You are drooled on, slobbered on, spit up on, and pooped on and you think that is OK. 
You stop cleaning and sit holding a crying child in your arms until life doesn't hurt quite so much.
You share your drinks, your food, your kisses every single day.  
You forget what it feels like to sleep in a bed all by yourself!
You cook with helpers who spill the flour, break the eggs, and spill the milk all over the kitchen, then they leave you to happily clean up the mess.  
You smile and laugh when you change your baby's dirty diapers.
You realize that every time your child says "mother", they are really saying "I love you".  
You realize that the most important work you will ever do lies within the walls of your own home, and it doesn't matter anymore what anyone else thinks about it.
