“This is my calling. This is my job, and I will do it better and with love each and every day, because those kids count on me and they love me for what I’m doing.”
I loved it. So many messages underlying this simple video.
Reminded me of these gems:
“Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling.
You do not collect children because you find them cuter than stamps.
It is not something to do if you can squeeze the time in.
It is what God gave you time for.”
As I uploaded this post, Carmen came in with the petals from a flower in our front yard. The other day at the park we practiced picking flowers at the stem so the petals wouldn’t come off. Next thing I knew, she came back with a perfect yellow flower for me.
What a treasure.
I told her, “I love it. I’m going to keep it forever!”
She said, “Well mom, I think you’re going to share it with Dad.”
