Most days it is hard to see past the smooshed banana on the floor, the legos spread here and there, and all those sweet hugs and belly giggles. It is difficult to remember that his daddy and I are to be preparing him for man-hood. To one day be a leader, in his community and his family. Again, whoa.
For me, it has been so helpful to actually sit and pray over these things. To look past the work of the everyday to see what is to come. I'm one of those mamas that tears up at the thought of my kids being all grown-up, but I must. That's my job, after all.
