Undeserved

While cleaning off the kitchen table after a long day of doing Mommy...Home-Keeper things...

Wishing I had gotten more done...

Wondering if what I do is enough...

To my surprise, I found this...




So much better than a paycheck.  Yes, it was like a great big hug from God...

Given through our eldest daughter. 




What a precious, undeserved gift.

Why undeserved?

Because I am just an imperfect Mama who wants to do everything right but fails...

But still my children love me...

I am blessed ♥

If one of my children did that it would have brought tears to my eyes, it makes being a mother the best jobs in the world. Little things like that I have kept in a box as they are so precious.

Prov.31;27-28A
She looks well to the ways of her household, and eats not the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed.

Your post blessed me.
Happy Thanksgiving!
