A Lesson Learned: Pride AND Humility

Being a parent is such a curious thing.  On one hand, you look down at this tiny, perfect little face and your heart overwhelms with pride that God chose me to protect and nurture this precious little person.  Nearly in the same breath, however, you can be completely humbled when that sweet little boy chooses to throw a MONSTROUS fit in front of everyone because he didn’t get to choose his sippy cup! 

Yes, you know what I mean.  If you’re reading this…you’ve been there too!

I don’t think I’ve ever felt such overwhelming pride and joy when I look into the faces of our precious boys.  They are truly amazing miracles from God himself…and my love for them is literally bursting out of my chest!  But there are times (and I know there will be many more to come) just like a few days this last week where I am completely humbled as a parent.

I think to myself “Did I really just write a post about how we effectively deal with toddler temper tantrums???  You certainly wouldn’t know it standing in my living room right now!”

Excuse me, there’s something stuck in my throat.  Oh, it’s my pride.  Let me just go ahead and swallow it.  :)
