If you doubt one person could do all that, doubt no longer,
The person who can do all that must be pretty special.
You’re right.
She is.
She’s a Mom.

Amen! Mother's are the ones who hold the family together, day by day by day. When we moved up here I remember saying that for Steve the move was from A to Z, for me it was A, B, C, D until I finally reached Z, taking care of every little detail along the way. I recently read that women's brains are wired to multi-task, which is obvious in our family!, and men's brains are more focused. Both are needed and that's why God created men and women different. Thanks for a great article.

I write about what you---
women, wives and moms---
about your family, faith and future.
I write about what's hard, what helps and what heals.
I show you how it's done. And not done.
I hold your hand as you find what matters to the Savior.
And let go of those things that mattered to you, but not to Him.
I write about what Him.
