Mommy love, part 2

Well, hubby love, too! Aren't they adorable?

Yesterday was a little frustrating for me. I was trying to get so much done, since I was out of town & had tons to put away & get settled in the house. Zachary was still missing his dad (who was at work) and just needing some extra attention that I was not giving. He kept pestering me, testing me, you name it, just to get my attention, which I wasn't willing to give at the moment.
My boy's love language is quality time. He just wanted to be with me. He finally got through to me when he said, "But Mom, I need you."
I'm so grateful that my heavenly Father doesn't wait until I'm exasperated and frustrated to come to me when I need Him. I think that being a parent is more about God teaching me how much I need Him and how much I don't know what I'm doing than it is actually raising my kids. The more I realize I need Him for everything, the more I can train my children to depend on Him for everything in their lives.
And after all, isn't that what they really need? When all is said & done, I don't want my kids to think that it all ends with Mom, but with Jesus.
