Reflections on life, marriage, and a young woman who is constantly learning how much there will always be to learn!

Thank you... everyone who responded to my request for mothers to share. I really enjoyed reading what you all had to say! And I was really encouraged. I want to share these responses with my husband.

Danielle's description of parenthood was so beautiful:

You have less time to yourselves so you have to enjoy the small, sweet, and thoughtful things more. You also get the wonderful satisfaction of seeing your husband turn into a father. You see them love, nurture, protect, and provide for this little person you love so much too. You see each other in this little individual and marvel at God's goodness in giving you this little soul. Then there are times when you have no clue what to do with them and you have to earnestly seek God together and talk and talk and talk...then submit, submit,and submit to your husband because you should trust God to work through hubby. Its hard work, but there is and can be so much joy in babies to be indulged in together.

Oh wow. That's an awesome description of parenthood. Hmm...thought provoking. I'll have to share it with Matt as we face parenthood sometime in the future. :)
