Mom thoughts

I've been reading this book now and again. It hasn't totally grabbed my attention yet it has some questions that do really make you think. So last night I grabbed the book and jumped in a hot bath for some relaxing time and I came across a question that I thought I had to share. The name of the book is Mom Overboard: 12 Lifesavers for Moms Who'd Rather Swim Then Sink. Anyway on to the thought to ponder, from page 48 of the book
Consider and respond to this thought: You are the mother that God assigned to your children. Your unique Divine Assignment is part of the reason they were given to you. If you don't know or don't apply your Assignment to your mothering, you are robbing your children of something significant God has in their divine curriculum."
So what made me go A-ha was there it is again. We have these children because God knew James & I would be the best parents for these kids and likewise these children would be the best for us to grow with. They weren't just randomly assigned to us. He will give us all we need to care for these souls. Now about the Divine assignment, this chapter talked alot about the fact we are each called for a certain task or calling in life and how and why we need to figure out what it is. The next chapter is suppose to get more in detail about that.
I had more thought on these but I must admit I have a 3 year old singing(screaming) into a microphone "Blessed be the name of the Lord" Oh my one of those parenting moments that makes my head pound yet the thank you thank you at the end is kinda cute. Thank you for making him cute Lord!
