Happy Birthday to my sister, Michelle today. And happy Mother’s Day to my own mom, as well as all the rest of you to whom this applies.
May today be a reminder to all of us, not of our children’s great need for us, but of our great need for them. May we not turn inward today, thinking of all the ways our families can serve us, likewise, may we not get frustrated when our children continue to act like children today (that, after all is the point, right?).
So, as you go throughout your day, making breakfast, cleaning breakfast up, getting your crew ready for church, playing referee, and solving the world’s problems for those under 7, be encouraged. Your family needs you and you need them, lest all of us spend life thinking only about ourselves.
