Proverbs 31:11

Monday at MOMS my Titus mom said something that has never ever occurred to me before in my life.  She said that our husbands must have confidence in us as moms if they leave their children home all day with us.  Our husbands must have confidence that we as moms will make the correct decisions about...

our children:  discipline, eating, playing, watching television, etc.
our home, our budgets, our social calendars, etc.

It is true that a mom wears many shoes during the day because we perform so many different jobs.  I make lots of decisions without Drew.  The weight of those decisions did not seem so huge as they do to me now.  That is weird!

I am thankful for my MOMS group and our year-long study of the Proverbs 31 woman.  She is the ultimate mom and wife.  She is something that I will never ever achieve, but she is God's biblical model for me.  Verse 31:11 says " Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value."

It is crazy that one silly statement had such an impact on my thinking.
