Something to think about

"I promise to work as hard to raise you as I did to get you. You are a gift that I asked for, prayed for, cried for and fought for. I know the Lord has entrusted you into our hands and we do not take this lightly." Katie Mohr

I am not a parent, nor do I plan to be anytime soon. But I hope I never forget this quote. This is exactly what a parent should believe about her child. I keep returning to her blog to read these few sentences; they have resonated with me all the way to my core. I cannot get them out of my mind. This is the kind of mom I want to be when the time is right.

That's a great quote. I think sometimes we don't see the baby placed in our arms, or the toddler crying in WalMart, or the teen who wants to drive away with friends, as a miracle placed in our lives. They are, and as a mother of three young adults, I'm in awe of the human beings and now friends that I got to love, direct, shape, and know.

That is exactly what I needed to hear for a "Mommy Boost" - thanks for sharing it.
