to be wives and mothers.
Against the back-drop of a world
where this is unusual and not looked upon
with eyes of approval. The question
is always asked "what are you going to be
when you grow up?"
The question hanging
there like a bad germ in the air. Taking a deep
breath my daughter says "I want to be a wife
and a mother. "
Channie, my three-year-old daughter was jumping on the trampoline
yesterday and she said "look mom I'm growing up
because I can jump really high"
"Oh, don't grow up
Channie-mae, I like you little." I responded
"I have to grow up mom
because I have to be a Mommy."
Oh yes you need to grow up then.
I wouldn't want you to miss out on the biggest blessing
in the world:
Being a Mommy.
Holding the hand of your child and with awe and wonder
thanking God for the privilege of being a wife
It's happening less and less these days.
I believe it's because few are being trained
to take the job of wife, mother, father,or husband
seriously. Few are choosing
to walk this road nowadays but we will press
on and Lord willing
Channie Mae will one day look into the eyes
of her husband and children and say,
mom was right
This is the best job in the whole wide
