Yet Another Post Where I Talk About My Children...
I KNEW that I would love those two little miracles more than I could ever imagine. That I would love one just as much as I loved the other…but that I would love them differently because they are different beings. I have never expected them to act the same way because they are two different people and I DO NOT expect perfection from them either. I do expect them to DO THEIR BEST and NEVER GIVE UP…but I KNOW that they will make mistakes and yes, there will be times that they let me down.
But I will ALWAYS love them.
I believe that Heavenly Father knows each of us by name and is amazed by our differences. When He sees us standing together, He sees our similarities but boy, are we all so different. He knew in the very instant that we were created that our differences would incredible and that each challenge He sent our way was handled so differently. He knows that we all learn things differently and at a different pace. He knows how to teach and guide us with our differences, it is just a matter of us paying attention. I believe that Heavenly Father looks on us as His own little miracles and that his love for us is more than we can fathom. I truly believe He loves me just as much as He loves all of you even though He may love us differently because we are so different.
As I commented yesterday, STRIVING for perfection gives us focus on how we want to be. I’d like to say that I’m a PERFECT accountant…but let’s be honest: I’m not. I’d like to say that I’m a perfect mom…alas, I am not. We are not perfect…but striving for perfection gives us a goal to work toward. Striving for perfection does not make us robots or clone-ish. It means we have the same goal in sight…but very different ideas on how to reach that goal. Maybe our differences are key to reaching that goal.
Either way, I think Arby’s had it right all along…different IS good.
