Imagine a home filled with three rowdy, laughing boys and one daughter with a giggle high and light.
In that home you might hear such phrases as:
“Don’t lick your brother’s face” and
“You can’t beat up your sister’s special doll.”
You might also find messes like this on your nine-foot ceilings,
evidence of a seven-year-old boy left too long in the bath.
Now imagine a young, often tired mama, who tends to be on the serious side.
She dislikes messes,
She appreciates controlled fun, if there is such a thing.
I never imagined myself to be the mama of so many boys, but I certainly am thankful for God’s wisdom in placing them in my care. By the grace of God, I’m learning to embrace
wrestling, and even….
Imagine that tired, young mama opening her mind and heart to a world of fun and let’s pretend. Those rowdy boys and silly daughter teach her to play. They teach her to take life less seriously.
Imagine life without my children? Impossible!
