My Little boys shoes

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked.Psalm 1
Being the mom to four boys has been so rewarding.
It's alot of work!
Don't ever fool yourself into thinking boys are easier.
As a mom I spend my time teaching our boys to be gentle yet strong.
Loving but brave
Dependable but Dependent.
It all confuses me sometimes.
I forget that I'm trying to work myself out of a job.
I'm trying to cram as much knowledge of the Lord and of the world
into them in a short amount of time.
Trying to push them to be strong guys
but not push them away.
The hardest part is knowing one day they will
leave my roof and start their own family.
They will cleave to their wife and my time
as their mother will be changed forever.
Rightfully so and I try to prepare them and myself for that road.
It's hard for me to go there but go there I must.
Knowing one day my job as mother will be done if I've done a good job!
So today I will continue to teach and mold these little men.
I will continue to work myself out of a job even though it's the best job in the whold wide world.
