How easy

Lately I have been thinking about how easy it could be to wrap my whole life up in Inara, she has really come alive. It is obvious she knows I am her Mom, and she smiles and gets so excited to see me. It really is one of the simplest things that melts my heart every time. That being said, I know I must guard my heart to not give it all to her. The truth is that she will inevitably break my heart someday...hopefully not too soon though.

As I spend most of my time with her, since I am practically a Stay-at-home-mom (SAHM), it would be so easy to make my life about her. Yes, lots of my time is spent, pumping (for her), feeding her, changing her, playing with her, but I MUST realize that true joy does NOT come from a person...it comes from Christ alone. Yes, it truly is a joyful moment when I wake her up and her tired little eyes light up when she sees me, but I am talking about a different joy. A joy in Christ! So when she is being a holy terror, or says she hates me, or sneaks out at night, I can still have a joy that no one can take away. I pray I can develop this discipline now, so when the storms of parenting come, I can take shelter in my Savior.
