Joyful Mom Mondays

My passion is to pursue a joy-filled, extraordinary, memory-making life with my family.  I want them to remember me as a mom full of laughter and fun - no matter what kind of day we may be having.  A verse I quote often to myself is John 10:10b:

I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

I do not want an average life. I want a life overflowing, full of abundance and joy, and I want to pass that on to my children, so that they in turn, can pass it on to my....heaven help us...grandchildren!

Each Monday here at Counting God's Little Blessings, I am featuring a Joyful Mom Mondays post with a link up.  Whether you are a mom of littles, of not so littles, of grown and gone children, or maybe just a wise woman with something to share, I invite you to link here so that we can encourage each other to go beyond average and achieve excellence in this journey of motherhood.  

The "rules" (because everyone else's blog has rules) are simple:

1.  Share anything that will encourage other moms to be joyful in their journey.  This can be a fun craft idea, a recipe to cook with your kiddos, a post from your heart, a Bible verse, a picture, a fun memory, a family night idea...anything that we moms can look at and say, "I should try that!" or "That's the way I want my kids to remember me!"

2.  Please link directly to your Monday URL post - not to your blog - so that we can look directly at your post in future days.

3. Please acknowledge the link to Joyful Mom Mondays in some way - either with the button or through a text link so that others can stop by and see all the ideas we have posted.
4.  Enjoy the journey with other moms.  Stop by the other blogs and leave a sweet note of encouragement.

This mothering thing is tough sometimes....way harder than I ever thought it would be, but it can be about so much more than merely surviving if we can draw encouragement from one another.
