Today at the park, I started talking with a young mother. OK, so honestly she struck up the conversation and then I engaged! Those who KNOW me, know I am not the type to strike up a conversation :)
So this young mother, asked how many children I had.....
My thought, HERE WE GO!!!!!
This was a young mother with a 4, 2.5ish and new baby.... that's a hard time for most mom's. I've heard from a lot of mothers that #3 was the HARDEST!!!! Not necessarily because of the baby, but because most of the time you have 3 toddlers, and ONLY 2 HANDS!
When I told her I have 10, she didn't even flinch! Her response was I want 12! I looked at her in shock! (I know that's horrible!!!) I just don't think I've heard that from anyone else! Let alone a young Mother! I congratulated her, and we started talking. Somehow I told her I homeschool, and she said, I want to homeschool, too!
(I just love Precious Moments!)
I also just met, through email, another young mom, one with a 2 year old, who already knows she wants to homeschool! I LOVE to hear of these young mothers, who already are so actively engaged in their children! Who already have such strong principles and values.
THEY ALREADY KNOW WHAT THEY WANT! AND WILL DO IT!!!
Sometimes, this world seems so lost, I saw a mother at the store who looked and acted just like her 4 year old son. YES SON, Mohawk and all! She couldn't control her three young children, and honestly seemed at a lost.
I am just happy to know there are still Mothers in this world who want to give up their all, for a better way!!!
KEEP IT UP MOM'S YOU ARE RAISING PRECIOUS SOULS, WHO NEED YOU!!!!
