Of course you are! But are you like me and often forget how blessed you are? Sometimes I can’t believe how ungrateful and selfish I can be.
My goal with All About Cloth Diapers is to bring you reviews and how-to information on cloth diapers, but I would also like to bring encouragement to your lives in other ways.
The fact that we have amazing children to even diaper is a miracle in itself. Hundreds of thousands of families spent Thanksgiving remembering or praying for children.
It’s at those times that I am grumbling because I have to change the third poopy diaper in an hour that I wish I would remember this reality.
Today I am reflecting on all the blessings in my life. To think about my life today compared to 4 years ago is astounding.
I encourage you, as we walk together in this journey of motherhood, to stop yourself the next time you feel under-appreciated, overworked and under-payed. As Americans and Canadians, we have been given so much more than the rest of the world. This certainly clouds our perception of “fairness”.
Today I wasn’t so great of a role-model for humility and unselfishness. But, tomorrow is a new day and I will do better by remembering what I have and what I could so easily lose.
I pray our journeys will be fruitful and our eyes are continuously opened to the many extraordinary blessings in our lives.
