If My Daughter’s Going to Be Like Me
It amazes me at how much my 2 year-old daughter strives to be like me!
From repeating words that I say to wearing my heels and trying to walk around in them, my daughter’s first ever role model is me, her mom, and while I am honored I am frightened!
No, really! I am the farthest thing from perfect, but I pray that if she’s going to be like me, then God I want to be like you.
I want to be godly and:
- I want to have patience and be calm in the moments when I usually want to yell and freak out.
- I want to give her grace and mercy in situations when she messes up and disappointments me.
- I want to make sure that I am nurturing her in the way that will be beneficial to her future.
- I want to be the voice of wisdom that she needs when problems arise.
Ultimately I want to be the woman that God has called be to be with the hopes that she will follow my steps.
