Parenting is the toughest job in the world! As a mother of six grown children I realize more and more that I could never hope to get an A+ grade from all of them. Did my best (under the circumstances LOL!).
It's kind of like the State of the Union Address...given every year and, depending on the present situation in the "government" of some of their lives...I probably carry, for the most part, a B+ average at best. (At least I hope so.) No make-up tests apparently...thank God! Couldn't go through it again!!
Lately it's been a little tough in that area...but the Lord knows all about it. He very graciously woke me up this morning and reminded me of so many things I had forgotten. Ways I had been there for them and yes, a lot of really sweet and kind things I had done for them, and my grandkids, over the years.
Can hardly believe how wonderful He is to me! After it was over I felt like He took my grade way up...at least in His testing! Feeling so much better about it.
When do you graduate this Motherhood course? I guess I get to see my diploma at the same time I get to see Jesus! Hang in there Moms...it AIN'T easy...but God will help you. STILL can't do it without His help! Thank you Lord.
