Parenting: The Ultimate Blessing??
Wow! Parenting.... it could kill me. Some days I feel on top of the world and other days I wonder if I will survive. "Will my children survive me?" is another question that often goes through my mind. I couldn't love them more and I seem to find my world revolves around them. Always going - always doing - always looking for the next opportunity for them. This week I had the ultimate "high" when Chambre returned from Church camp and had given her life to Christ. She isn't a child easily persuaded to do anything. She did this on her own - and I knew she "knew" what she was doing. When her counselor shared Chambre's "news" with me, time stood still. The birth of my children is about the only other time I have felt such complete relief and happiness. I don't cry easily,(admittedly I'm pretty hard hearted) but I have to say I shed tears of happiness.
There have been some lows this week too in the parenting journey. But I always find the good and the blessings. Nothing can beat my baby girl being welcomed to heaven's gates!! And that my friends makes parenting ....the ultimate blessing!
