Theory of Everything

Friday, September 18, 2015

The other night we watched "Theory of Everything". Good movie. The strength and perseverance that Stephen Hawking shows (aka the amazing acting of Eddie Raymayne) is inspiring. Just like every movie that is trying to depict a real life situation, you need to take it all with a grain of salt. What touched me the most was at the end of the movie when Stephen turns to Jane (his ex-wife) while watching their children play in a courtyard and says "look at what we made".

This statement really stayed with me. Do you get any more powerful than looking at your child and thinking "I created you"? It really created a perspective for me. I have often thought about that statement when I have felt frustrated, angry, or even happy because of something that they do or say. "Look at what we made" is so powerful and has really allowed me to understand the pure joy that my children bring me. So do they drive me crazy...of course, but is there also not a day that goes by that both of them bring me a smile or some sort of joy that cannot be described by anyone or anything else...absolutely.

So, basically I love being a mom to both Wip and Duncan. I love what they bring to my life and I love all of the blood, sweat, and tears that I am putting into their life. "Look what we made"...I can honestly say it is my most amazing accomplishment (and they are only 6 and 4!). Lucky me.

Ah yes, how very true. Can't tell you how many times I feel the same way.
