sharing from my heart to yours
I have discovered the greatest career in history!
Literally...from the very beginning when Adam and Eve laid eyes on their first child, I believe this has to be the #1 'job' that ever was and will be. Right up there with 'wife', the title of 'mother' is such a JOY!
The two short years I have had the privilege of bearing this title have been amazing!
I will also admit, that being a parent is one of THE toughest things I have ever done. Not that I have had any extreme experiences in my lifetime thus far. But really, would you apply for a job that involved working around the clock with no 'real' breaks, no (monetary) paycheck, major (and many) responsibilities, no paid time off, dealing with tempers, tantrums, and tears, being in charge of discipline, and so on...!?!? No, that sounds ridiculous!
But what if the same job offered no chance of layoffs, unimaginable love, partner support, and endless lifelong benefits ranging from huge smiles and hugs to "I wove you, Mommy" every day. From rocking a cuddly baby to laughing a silly antics. From endless fun to fresh beginnings. From soft little coos to hilarious giggles. From unlimited teaching opportunities to watching learned skills. From "I'm sorry" with a hug to awe and amazement. The list is endless. Sounds pretty worth it if you ask me!
Remember to thank God if He has given you the amazing blessing of being a parent. Children are gifts from Him and I can think of no greater gift except for the Son that our God GAVE to us for our benefit of eternal life. Take hold of that gift, then treasure the gifts that He has given you. Love them, teach them, care for them, and give them back to Him. This 'job' is not a calling for everyone, and I know there are so many other blessings in this life that are ours for the taking. I just wanted to share a few of my own thoughts and maybe give you a little inspiration to love your job that much more! I better run... one of my little blessings just woke up from his nap and wants his Mommy! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
