We have often heard it said that it would be nice if motherhood came with a manual. Maybe you hvae uttered this comment yourself at times. And while there are thousands (probably more like tens of thousands) of books that attempt to teach us how to raise our children, I still struggle from time to time. So, I am forced to rely on my gut (or Spidey senses) much of the time.
Today’s post is inspired by Junior, who struck this pose as we were outside for a break when the kids got home from school.
A mother’s Spidey senses come in many forms. Sometimes its a weird feeling in the pit of your stomach or sometimes its a thought that won’t leave your mind. But, whatever form it takes, it is often a sign or signal that should not be ignored.
For example, our boys play outside in the backyard often. Sometimes my husband and I sit out there with them, but most of the time we let them play independently. But, we (I) always look out the window to check on them. Every now and then my Spidey senses kick in urging me to go check on them…even if I just did. And what do I find? Sometimes a slightly injured child or sometimes, dueling brothers and other times, my checking is uneventful. Nonetheless, I am always glad I surrendered to my Spidey senses.
How often have your Spidey senses saved the day?
Until next time-
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV)
