I do this weird thing in my head where I picture how and what my kids will remember… scary, right?
I hope when I am old and gray or hanging in Heaven with my Jesus my kids remember me as a mom and woman who knew the proper time and place for things, behaviors, and attitudes.
I want to BE and BE REMEMBERED as a woman who knew when it was a time to…
put on a little extra makeup and a beautiful dress
throw on some rubber boots, a pair gloves, and a sunhat to dig in the dirt
pull on some spandex and sweat one out at the gym
put your hair in a top knot, throw on some soft pants, blare the music, and clean the house
embrace my feminine side
hang with the boys
Or a time to…
rest and relax
talk to strangers
mind your own business
give without question
How about knowing the time to…
make a list
enforce all the rules
have grace for bad behavior
stay up a little late
skip bath time
have fro yo for dinner
Moms definitely need to take the time to…
pour a glass of wine
have an extra cup of coffee
engage in deep conversations
laugh until your face hurts
listen without judgement
Doing the right thing for the right reason, at the right time, in the right place… is a skill to be learned, studied, and constantly improved upon.
May I be remembered as timely, yet unpredictable.
Lord, help me!
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens
