Lovely! What mother cannot relate! Particularly like the peice about them being so influenced by the world out there. Such a continual focusing and re focusing journey specially these days! I also like your reference to children as seedlings. I call mine my little eggs or chickens:)
Good encouragement for all those moms out ther with a growing garden. Keep up the good work.
I really enjoyed your writing. loved the comparison of children to plants. That was a good analogy. Thanks for sharing

Dear friend, Jen:

Clearly, you are a great mother and an awesome servant of Christ. What's funny is, your household sounds as busy as my own: five seedlings to cultivate in the Smith home.

This was an excellent reminder of not just the mother's job, but the parent's job in the lives of our children.

Nicely done, sister.

What an amazing piece! I really enjoy the encouragement. Although it was from "Mom's" perspective, it really help this Dad out too. Thanks!

Congratulations on your 2nd place award in the Beginner's category.

I don't think we can ever thank mothers and fathers enough for the important role they play in a child's life.
