Kids–What we (still) do for them…



Saturday before Christmas, I’m in line at the post office. Forty minutes later, as I walk out the door, my daughter calls me: “Are you still in line? Can I drop off a package for you to mail for me?”


I get back in line…

How do you serve those you love?

Service-"A little child shall lead them"

    Sometimes, I’ll run into a grocery store for my mother. To really understand the significance, you need to know I despise grocery shopping.

    Thanks for joining my bloghop! 🙂

  3. I love that you said Sure when she asked if you’re still in line, which we know you weren’t. I had this image in my mind of you saying it without any trouble, and it made me smile. Also, I’d like to thank you for posting such a short post, significant yet short. Makes visiting blogs during this Challenge much more fun. 🙂

    That’s a mom 🙂 I know when son lived at home, I would always fold his clothes when he left them in the dryer even though he told me I didn’t have to and even though folding clothes is one of my least favorite chores (that and unstacking the dishwasher)

    Isn’t this the truth! I think that one of the main reasons we have families is to help us learn true, selfless love and service for others. It’s so much easier to serve our kids, don’t you think?

I'd love to hear your thoughts! Let's chat!
