Being a Mother


"Being a mother is an awesome responsibility. It requires spiritual discipline, self-sacrifice, and flexibility. But as a mother, I do not carry this responsibility alone, for God works with me, giving me His strength and compassion when I am weak and tired, blessing both my children and myself. Motherhood may be a demanding life, it is true - but it is also one of great delight, an opportunity to experience God's grace and joy."

This is so true! And it takes those special moments to realize the change you are really making in your child's life. No sacrifice is too much, and sometimes we need to take a step back and realize we are doing so much more than caring for our children. Thanks for the quote!
