Humility 101

I'm taking a life course called Humility 101. My current instructors are a toddler and a newborn.

Here are a few lessons from today's curriculum.
  1. Your primary function in life is a milk machine and butt wiper.
  2. You think you know how to discipline your self-asserting toddler, but everything that  should work does not.
  3. You realize that you might just blow your entire savings account if someone offered you 24 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
  4. You give everything you have, yet you still feel like it's not enough.
Knowing that my attitude and actions each day directly effect two little lives that are totally dependent on me is very humbling.

I'm trying to learn how to fully go to God for the strength that I need and accept his grace for my many shortcomings.

These are some challenging days. But I wouldn't trade them for the world.

Your prayers for this leg of the journey are greatly appreciated.

Please meet my humble instructors...

Was Professor Noah trying to demonstrate for us one of his teaching moments where he pushes you to your limits? How appropriately timed. I will be praying, dear sister!
