Being a mommy for the past 11 years, I feel like my life is in a constant state of fluctuations and transitions. Once we get through one phase with one girl, a completely different unknown phase starts with another. This is stuff you don’t find in books or on the Internet. Its all about discovering each child for their uniqueness and abilities, strengths and weaknesses.
We’re in major transition right now with the girls on either end of the spectrum. Sometimes Rob and I just look at each other in wonder and talk and pray about what to do next. Sometimes we are completely at a loss as to how to help our children through a certain phase we have absolutely no handle on.
Its at those times when we ask for help. We’re not perfect. We’re not all-wise or all-knowing. Just because Rob is a pastor doesn’t mean that he has been given a magic bag of Pastor dust to solve any and all problems that might rise up in our path.
Our kids are fine. I don’t want you to worry about them. As their Mommy I am constantly trying to help them be the best little person they can be at each age and stage, that’s all. Sometimes I just don’t know how to do it.
I am so, so thankful for people that know more than me. The mentors I have are my life-lines in times like this.
Do you have a mentor? I’d love to hear about who it is and how they help you.
