Thankful for My Roles

I am so thankful for the roles I get to perform each and every day.  I’m thankful to God for the roles he has given me and I’m also thankful for the roles he has not given me. 

I love that I get to focus on taking care of my family each day.  I’ll be honest though, sometimes that includes jobs and tasks that I do not particularly like or enjoy.  However, the fact that God has put me in this role and allows me to make a difference in the lives of my family, humbles me.  I’m honored that I have the responsibility to clothe, feed and take care of my family and our house.   I do not take my role lightly.  I put a lot of time, energy and commitment into making my husband’s home life more enjoyable, easier and relaxing.  I also make sure our kids are well fed, well dressed, well cared for and are continually learning what it means to be a Christian in today’s world. 

The role I have is an important one and I know that.  A few years ago I was a single mother, working full-time at a stressful job and doing my best to take care of my daughter.  I did the best I could with the role I was given at the time.  It’s a tough job being a single mom and I respect each mother who is struggling with that role right now.  If you know a single mother, reach out and offer a hand every now and then.  They will appreciate it!

Today, I’m married to a wonderful man who sees his role as providing for our family, leading us and protecting us.  He does each of those roles very well and I’m so thankful for that!  If it was my role  to provide, lead and protect, we would be in trouble.  Luckily it is not.  My role is to nurture and teach.  Thank you God for knowing my strengths and more importantly my weaknesses!
