Today for "We Encourage" I want to share something with you that I was encouraged by last week.
I know all of us have had those moments where we wonder if everything we are doing is noticed. Whether we are stay at home moms, working moms, working wives or whatever fits you, it must have crossed your mind. I know it has crossed mine.
Hubby and I are not only trying to train our children in "the way they should go" , we also want them to have fun. I pray they will enoy being in this home and have fond memories of their time growing up here. I will admit, however, on some of those long tedious days I lose sight of that. I'm certainly not always "fun mom".
On Thursday night I went to back to school night and my first stop was in J's 1st grade class. On her desk was her "All About Me" poster she had made that week.
Try not to be distracted by the amazing spelling skills she has. She must take after her Daddy.
In typical Jami form I could barely make it through the classroom time. I spent most of my time staring at her poster. And when her teacher gave us paper to write a letter to our student I almost lost it. Not to worry, I didn't completely embarrass myself and I was able to hold back the waterworks.
I was instantly grateful that God provided this moment. This moment that acknowledges that even though Hubby and I are far from perfect, J does love being a part of this home. This family. God has blessed us with the job of raising these beautiful kids and I'll take any little piece of encouragement I can get.
