My Work

My Work
~Mary Lou Burkholder

I have the greatest work in the world;

The job of rocking a baby to sleep,

That of guiding his tottering feet,

A baby's clothes to launder and fold,

A precious life to shape and mold,

A drink to give from a little cup,

At night his toys to gather up,

Hurts to heal and fears to quell,

A baby to keep clean and well,

A stack of diapers to put away,

Oh, what a happy worthwhile day!

I am a "Mother."

Is it just me, or are those freckles on Elijah's nose just the cutest thing ever?

it's one of the reasons i have not had a baby yet.. cause i know it would break me heart to have to go back to work and leave the baby.. and right now.. i must work!

It is the best and hardest job ever. Watching them grow into the people that God has designed them to be is such a gift. Facilitating that with our daily love and discipline is a real gift.
