I really struggle with trying to raise these girls in the right way. I never thought that God would allow me to raise girls, since I never had a sister and I struggled with my relationship with my own mother. What in the world does He have in mind? The only good thing I can think of is that these girls force me to daily pray for guidance and wisdom, because I need loads of it to deal with these beautiful, independent, strong, stubborn, tough, smart girls.
It is amazing how time flies by. I seem to be a bystander watching my life rushing by like a train at top speed. This year, if the Lord wills it, my baby will turn 1, my husband and I will celebrate 10 years of marriage, my son will be 6 and go to first grade and my tall blondes will turn 4 and 5 on their birthdays, I will finish my coursework for my PhD and begin to research and write my dissertation.
I re-read the last paragraph and I feel it is very me centered, it is kind of annoying. The longer I am on this earth, the more I realize how I have a deep yearning in my heart to help those who cannot help themselves. Service and missions become increasingly important. May God give me the eyes to see the ones around me needing His help and a voice to speak for those who are burdened and persecuted.
Anyway, random thoughts on a day that I get to stay at home and be a mommy. Blogging is getting more difficult because of my job and school. I will try to keep up a little, but don't be surprised if I kind of lay off for a couple of weeks at a time.
