Thank you for noticing those things in my children that need work. I appreciate the fact that you would point out what is more than obvious to me.
It really isn’t enough that some mornings I wake up and wonder how I am going to make it through another day…another tantrum, another battle over what my child is going to wear, another opportunity to wonder if the right choices will be made.
I’m so very grateful that you have somehow managed to get this parenting thing down to a science. Could I please borrow your manual?
You see, I’ve come to realize how much I don’t know…when at one time I thought I knew, it’s become blazingly obvious that I’m more than clueless. Just when I think I got it all under control…a new stage, a new phase enters in and I feel like I am starting all over again.
But it greatly helps to know that others can see how imperfect I am as a mother…how sinful my children can be. Sometimes I need to be reminded because it’s not enough to live it out.
