For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Those precious moments

I do not think that any mother would say that parenting is easy. We want to do the right thing, we want to parent the way God wants us to, we hope for the salvation of our children, knowing that it is all in God's hand. We teach what we can, correct, instruct, discipline, play, feed, clean, endless list .... Then you have these moments that warm your heart:

- "Mom you are the queen of cookie baker", borrowed yes, from Paws and Tales, but hey, I'll take it.
or the
- "Mom, you are great, or you are the coolest"
- or even the "Thank you mom", in which you sense the genuine gratitude being expressed
- and of course, the out of nowhere "Mom I love you" or sudden hug.

Let us try to cherish these moments and remind ourselves of them when the going gets tough, or wonder if we are getting anything through to them.

Have a great day, Joelle
