What I have learned Thursday…even though it is Friday.

I must apologize.  I had a very busy day yesterday, and at the end of it when I usually will find time for this post; I had a very important date with Edward and Jacob.  I got home late, and was to tired to even think about it.

So, this morning as I began to think about what I have learned and what I wanted to share… I was quickly prompted to check this out.  I know that it was sent to me for a purpose.

I must share with you.  Please watch in it’s entirety.  You will be amazed at just how “real” these images are.  How “real” they depict motherhood to be.  Sometimes I felt as if they were taking film of my own family struggling to have prayer, or cook a meal.

I cried as I felt the reward of the mother watching her own children pray from the doorway.

At times, I think we all like to paint a beautiful picture of motherhood however, I know in my home it is not always beautiful.  Other times the love and beauty of it is so marvelous that I can’t help but know that the family is a divinely appointed unit.

This message will uplift you, strengthen you, and remind you of just how important the hardest job you have ever done is.

Once you have watched this, remember how important you are in the life of your children. Also how special you must be to God in doing his work; and raising and teaching his children.

I did.

I have learned this for today.

I may forget it tomorrow, but…

I will try to keep it in my heart always….

and reflect in moments that are trying.
