"Busy Doing What?!?"

"Busy" lying in the yard with my little lady.

I was watching 7th Heaven yesterday and there was a scene in the beginning where a man was trying to offer the mom, Annie, a job selling her extraordinary muffins in his shop.  She declined saying that she was too busy.  She was at home raising five children (Sam & David were yet to be born).  She said that she was too busy in front of two of the children and they promptly asked -- "Busy doing what?!?"

The mother's expression was that of shock, of course.  Raising children takes so much work and does indeed keep a mother rather busy, stay at home or not!  That doesn't mean that one's children understand all that a mother does for them.

So it is my prayer that as I and my child(ren) get older and they make such remarks that have the potential to sting, unknowingly of course, I hope that I'll take the time to remember that they may never truly know the magnitude of my sacrifice and the time I put in with them.  At least not until they have children of their own :)!

    1. They were playing it back to back on the GMC network on Mother's Day. It's such a good, wholesome show! I miss shows like that on television!

  3. I used to love that show!!! My son will pull on me like, "mommy do this or that". He doesn't understand that I may have worked 8+ hours and that I'm exhausted. Being a mother is definitely a sacrifice but it is such a blessing!!
