I came across this quote from Kittie Franz recently. After a few days home alone with a teething, fussy toddler this is a good reminder for me!
"Remember, you are not managing an inconvenience; You are raising a human being."
How true that is! When you step back and look at the big picture, all the stresses and frustrations are nothing compared to how amazing it is to be able to pour love into that little person. What a high calling mothering is. Isn't it amazing that God trusts us with such precious gifts!
