Lifes Many Hurdles

So for all my friends and family that know me personally most of you know I was the number one worst computer student in high school and college for that matter. I could crash entire systems without even tying and make the biggest “oops” on almost any computer. To be honest, I have been so awful with them in my past I’m surprised I even use one to this day! So I’m happy to say I think most of you would agree I have made great strides with my “computer hurdle” and skills.

While I was thinking about what to write this morning I began to think of all the other “hurdles” we mothers face in our “journey of motherhood”. The little “hurdles” first diaper changes, lost pacifiers in the night, the best way to introduce foods to our little ones, surviving a crawling infant, a walking toddler, and first boo-boo’s the list is virtually endless. We conquer many “hurdles” without even realizing it. We simply chug along!

What I am finding to be true is as so many wise mothers with older children have told me “Little kids little problems; Big kids big problems”. Yes, my children are still very small but as their mother I do feel it is my God given duty to protect them, raise them to be good loving individuals, work hard, love themselves, love God, and grab a hold of all that life has to offer. Now those “hurdles” aren’t seeming so small!!
