Some days someone will say something to me about my large family. In fact at least every week I hear, "Are all those yours?" (like they are shoes or something), or "I don't know how you do it." or "Man I could NEVER have that many kids!"
More often then not doubt starts creeping in my mind and I start to get "under" it. Now these people mean absolutely no harm and I know that, but then I start thinking...
OMG what am I thinking, are my children getting all they need from the Chief and I. Are they neglected, do they feel they have one on one time with us weekly? Daily? Do I know my children, do they know me? Questions, questions, questions. Then like I have forgotten or something I simply remember...HOLY CRAP I AM HAVING ANOTHER BABY! 5,5,5,5,5,5,5, Children.
So doubt is a horrible thing. When I doubt something, to me, it means my faith has been squashed it's MIA. The Chief and I never doubt our parenting skills, I know as long as we follow the best guideline (Biblical) we are doing great, but just sometimes, it's difficult.
So here are the truths that I DO know and don't doubt. Joel and I are a son and daughter of the King, our heavenly father who Father's millions of children on a daily basis...He handles crisis, hurt, discipline, organization, request, and complaints and does it with ease.
Now, because I have have heritage and because "on earth as it is in Heaven" Heck yeah, we can do this...and I too can do it with ease! Thank you JESUS! If HE can juggle millions of sons and daughter's (5 )precious Doodlebugs are a drop in the bucket! Piece of cake. Easy street all the way. Right?
I got this!
