Raising children is not for the faint of heart.
Some of us choose to do this,
And some of us, for reasons known only to God, raise other people's children.
Some days are full of excitement and laughter,
And some are full of tears and messes.
And in the chaos and frustration, it is easy to forget what is important.
Because, truth is, it can be exhausting to be responsible for these little minds, hearts and bodies.
Sometimes, I fall into bed thinking God has made a grave mistake in my calling.
And other days, I am thrilled with the progress and development of the children in my care.
