Today, over lunch, my boys talked excitedly about growing up, but I said don’t get there too fast. Nicky said he thinks parenting might not be too hard because “you make it look easy, mom.”
Best. Compliment. Ever.
It’s not always good conversation over a meal, that I didn’t have to make, as a mom of three boys. But once in a while you get a rare moment in time when all of your kids are functioning at their best, rested, non-cranky selves and they speak to you in honesty, without pretense or agenda. And you get to see that all your hard work, sacrifice and prayer is actually making a difference. Okay, I DID say this is RARE.
But it is an undeniable glimpse that I do not walk this incredibly difficult mom thing alone. And for this grace, I am forever grateful.
It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. 2 Corinthians 4:13-15
