Often I have mothers ask me how I did such a great job raising my children. I always sigh because I know it was never me. What they see is God’s plan for my children unfold. He used me as a vessel in their life and I am the one that received the blessing. Our children are not ours; they belong to the Lord. As a young mother, enjoy each moment (good or bad!) with your children. God has given you the best gift of life.
