Many often we see posters saying how much we moms sacrifice ,take an example of the Fan page of the movie “Mom’s Night Out” which tells all the reasons why a mom needs a night out.Don’t get me wrong thinking that I’m against “Moms Night Out”,Its just these posts don’t seem encouraging to me,they make motherhood look like a dreary ordeal endured.
So this prompted me to make the I Never Knew List….
1.I could Run,just this other day I surprised myself ,got me thinking ,wow did I really run this long !Toddlers!!
2.I could draw ,I found a 3 year old hidden inside some boxes self help book on how to do portraits.Not picasso,but I think I’m getting there 😀
3.I could do frugal.Mr.Wise even made a note to appreciate me on this (ps.I m the spend thrift at our house)
4.Overcame my road fear and learnt driving after 4 long years of not doing so.
5.I can make mom connections with random strangers,just this other day at the playground my waving friend and I went ahead to make mom talk.My introversion seems to take back seat.
6.I have never been more closer to god than I do now, most days send me to my knees.
Life after my little one has changed but it has changed me for the better.
Hey moms I hope you to take time to write your “I never knew..” list, the number of things to be thankful for will AMAZE you.
A thankful heart is always a full heart.
20 giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
1 Thessalonians 5:18(NKJV)
18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
I would love to hear your “I never knew..” list too,drop them in the comments section :).You could be the encouragement for another mom out there!
