I like cold coffee; and I'm not just talking iced mocha-although those are a fave - but coffee, cream and sugar. I love coffee. I'd love to drink it hot, but because of the CP & muscle spasm, drinking hot beverages doesn't lead to a pleasent sight! So,it's much easier for me to drink it cooler or even stone cold. Barrett will fix me a cup before he goes to work & I'll drink later in the day.
Now, I'm not writing about this just to tell you I like cold coffee. As I mentioned earlier, I am participating in the Titus 2 University. Today I was listening to the first audio teaching and it got me thinking of how different I am from the "normal" mom. Misty Krasawski, owner of the Encouraging Hearts at Home blog, is a home schooling mom of eight. She seams the "perfect" woman. As I started to listen, at first I felt really intimadated, but as I listened to what she said about to letting go and letting God have the glory. This snapped me back into reality. While I may not be the typical, "normal" mom, God has made me a mom. and a friend told me years ago that God gave mine children to me and no one else, He's a specific reason for me to be their mother and for them to be my children. Psalm 139:14 says "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made..." I am a different kind of mother, but I have faith that I'm exactly the mother He wants me to be. So I can keep trudging along, doing the best I can to praise and glorify God. It's OK to be a different type of mom.
Just like it's OK to drink a cold cup of coffee
