Do You Stoop Without Sighing?

Today I’m over at MomLifeToday, sharing about the idea of serving our children without sighing. From the post,

As a mom of young children, I can find myself sighing. Too often, actually. The cries for “more milk,” “Help me,” and “Read to me,” can seem endless. And, all too often, I sigh because I’m being interrupted or delayed in a household task or a homeschooling assignment.

I’m not talking about ecstatic or contented sighs. I’m talking about that back of the throat, disgusted kind of sigh. You know the one.

Recently, I was reminded how God stoops without sighing….

  1. Thanks for the reminder! I sure need it somedays. It’s amazing (although it shouldn’t be) that when I pray for patience with my children, God graciously gives it.

  3. sigh…thanks, I needed this today! It’s been a long week.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
