I had visions of today being relaxing and rejuvenating and lying around snuggling with my babies watching movies all day. Yeah, so my poor sick Maxwell did that…he has an abdominal ultrasound on Monday to try and detect what is going on with his tummy troubles…would you pray for him, friends? My mama hearts wants to take his pain upon myself but God has other plans :(. Needless to say that while I wish I was napping with him all day on the couch…my sweet daughter is all.business!
When girlfriend gets something in her head, she doesn’t rest until it’s done. I tried and tried to tell her that our Christmas decorating may take a few days and she humored me…but deep down she was like…Yeah right, mama…we’re getting this DONE! It was like a rewind of 9 years ago when we moved into this house and I would.not. let my husband sit.down until every.picture was hung! Now she did all the heavy lifting thanks to help from Jackson’s bruit strength. They got all the boxes and totes upstairs but we could not stop until EVERYTHING was up. We had a minor hiccup with finding the correct tree stand and guess who found it-? Em…but of course! She would not rest until it was all done!
I have had the light shown on my heart today and I am the same way friends. But I love the passion she has…and she is just so much sweeter than I am. When I want something done I’m not always so nice…but she has this precious determination that doesn’t quit. I so admire that about her. It is so cool how when my husband and I look at our babies we can see a little bit of each of us…but we also see how God put Himself into them in different ways that only He could do in designing their unique strengths and characteristics.
Today I am so thankful that while my daughter is much like me…God made her so unique and sweetly special.
