Recently a Facebook memory showed up from this time last year. It was about a moment I had with my second child.
This is what I wrote:
"Sometimes as a mother my heart is overwhelmed by the sweetness of my children's souls and how the LORD uses them to teach me. Today was one of those days. As we were walking to Disneyland this morning there was a homeless man on one of the corners. My heart sank and I felt the spirit ask me to pray for him but I was afraid and nervous. I was holding Madysons hand at the time and I looked down at her and could tell she was troubled. I asked her what was wrong. Her eyes welled with tears and I said "you saw the man huh?" She said "yes" through her tears. I asked her "did you want to pray for him?" She said "yes but I was too scared". I looked at her and told her I was too and next time lets tell eachother so we can be brave together. So often our children teach us more then we teach them."
This girl continues to amaze me with the loving kindness she has. Since this day she has been so brave and loving towards others. Her heart for those with special needs is apparent and she challenges me more and more to look for the strength and beauty in everyone.
