Bringing up Boys

God never promised us easy. It isn't easy raising children, deciding on which preschool to send your child to, going to work everyday and letting someone else look after your child. It isn't easy to meet their many demands, making sure you have enough energy to sustain their bountiful energy supply, putting a home cooked meal on the table every night. It isn't easy disciplining and making sure they understand kindness. it isn't easy teaching them the ways of the Lord and to have a servant's heart. All of this is overwhelming at times.

But I just got home and walked into Jake's bedroom. He was already in bed for the night. His reply is always the same: kiss me, hug me, and say my prayers. As we were praying, both of his arms held me tight and when we were finished he replied "I love you".
That, my friends(readers), erases all my short comings that I make on a daily basis. My heart swells with a love beyond all understanding for my first born. I don't deserve such blessings. So thankful am I that God chose me to be his mommy.
The End.

P.S. We had a fun and busy weekend but I will share later. Hope all of you have a great week!
