Message to Young Mothers

I have been thinking about this for awhile. It is HARD to be a mom to young children, especially many young children. I know this. I spaced mine out for 16 years. When the oldest was 16, the youngest was born. I had a baby/toddler/preschooler at home for 22 years. I joke that on the weekends I would wait up for the teenager to come home from the date, then wake up an hour later to nurse the baby......

So when life gets you down, it seems like you will NEVER have a free moment to yourself ever again, I give this message as a reminder to us all:

"For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat, I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison and ye came unto me.

Then shall the righteous answer him saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison and came unto thee?

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily, I saw unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

Matthew 25:35-40
