MY THANK YOU
PARENTING is the hardest—and best—job I've ever had. It requires a patience and grace I continually work to achieve. My husband and I have three children, truly the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to us. Each one has a uniqueness and vitality that both amaze and challenge me.
Yes, there are days that bring tears of gratitude and joy, and other days that just bring tears. There are moments I'm really proud of who I am as a parent, and moments I'm not. Yet no matter what kind of day or moment I may be having, I know that the real Parent—the One truly in charge—is God, the Father and Mother of everyone. This knowledge helps me calm down when I feel concern, and emboldens me when I feel unsure what to do. Most of all, seeing God as the Father-Mother of our whole family humbles me. Looking at our children, I see more clearly that their character, beauty, creativity, and goodness come from our Father-Mother.
