The Essence of Motherhood

I took the kids to see the free movie this week.


 I was struck by one simple yet profound statement:

"Day after day it takes a committed mom to teach him 
how to live in the jungle." 


I thought, "Yes!  That is the essence of motherhood!"




Day after day...

...we love

...we teach

...we cry

...we pray

...we play

...we learn

...we try

... and we try again

...we clean

...we nourish

...we read

...we watch

...we listen

...we correct

...we change and make changes...

Just to do it all again

and again

and again.

All so we can teach them how to live in the jungle.
