Irreplaceable Mom

Stay at home moms spend countless hours with their children.  So when my kids have a hard time letting go of me when I am away from home, it always takes me by surprise.  Recently while I was away for a few days at a conference, I came home to this creature sitting on my couch.  Isn't she lovely?  That is me, minus my head.  My girls dressed a body pillow in my clothes, placed her on the couch and gave her my laptop.  I had my own mini-me!

As a Mom, I sometimes lose the vision of just how important I am in the lives of my children.  I get wrapped up in life: cooking, cleaning, errands, laundry, blogging, hobbies, chauffering, working, get the idea.  So when they build a statue of me while I am gone, it kinda gets my attention! 

God has entrusted me with these children to raise for the Glory and Honor of His name.  It is an immeasurable honor and I desire to make him proud. 

This summer I will be far more intentional in pouring into the lives of my children than I ever have before.  I am excited that I have found some terrific resources to help me along the way.  Come on back next week and I will tell you all about it!

Oh how this made me laugh! I reminds me of my late at night blogging when I feel like I have no brain. Your children are precious. They know their mama very well!
