It's amazing how they are always watching...

Today i sat down to do my Beth Moore Study, Breaking Free (second time doing the study, i recommend it to everyone) the particular day i was studying couldn't have come at a more perfect moment in my life. Beth gave a little excerpt from a book she had just read called, It's Always Something, by Gilda Radner. 

"When I was little, my nurse Dibby's cousin had a dog, just a mutt, and the dog was pregnant.  I don't know how long dogs are pregnant, but she was due to have her puppies in about a week.  She was out in the yard one day and got in the way of the lawn mower and her two hind legs got cut off.  They rushed her to the vet and he said, 'I can sew her up, or you can put her to sleep in you want, bu the puppies are okay.  She'll be able to deliver the puppies.'
Dibby's cousin said, 'Keep her alive.'
So the vet sewed up her backside and over the next week the dog learned to walk.  She didn't spend any time worrying, she just learned to walk by taking two steps in the front and flipping  up her backside, and then taking two steps and flipping up her backside again.  She gave birth to six little puppies, all in perfect health.  She nursed them and then weaned them.  And when they learned to walk, they all walked like her."

I mean how crazy it is to think that your little ones are soaking up EVERYTHING your saying and doing. Always following you around to get the "right" cues on how to act in the crazy world. It literally made me cry reading this. It just solidified the way i want my girls to grow up and in order for that to happen i am going to have to change a few things in my own life. They aren't massive changes, but defiantly necessary ones. 

So happy after the morning i had today that this is what God, literally placed in front of my face. Thank you for the reality check:) 

I want my girls to learn from example. To always give and not expect anything in return. To volunteer your time and enjoy it. I help others always. To love unconditionally. To always have a heart for God. I want them to be prepared for this world in the best way possible, and thats exactly what i intend to give them! 


  1. That is beautiful. I have tears in my eyes. I want to do the Breaking Free soon. I also would love to hear a little bit from you about your experience. Hugs & love. Lauren
