She has a little routine every night before she goes to bed as well.
After we brush our teeth and wash our face, and plays in “babba’s” room for a bit she goes into her room and she begins by washing her hands, because she is a very clean child 🙂
She checks the oven. And then she goes and has a serves me some coffee (we are hispanicm we don’t drink tea at night, we drink coffee 🙂
And once all of that is done, we read a book, pray and go to bed.
She does this every night.
It’s almost innate, but also very much learned. She learns it all from me.
I am raising a beautiful little girl. A sweet, lovely little lady. And I want so much from her. I want her to be a good homemaker. I want her to enjoy serving others, serving her family now and her future family. I want her to be content with her calling of wife and mother.
I want that for her as much as I want that for myself, if not more.
The truth is that I struggle with this calling of mine at times. I struggle keeping the house in order all the time. I struggle with the mundane chores. I struggle finding contentment of being mom all day and night! I love it. But there are days when I would rather stay in bed and not want to be needed for everything.
And so everyday I pray that the Lord will help me to find fulfilment and joy in my calling. That there will be a newness to each day and a sweet content every day.
And I pray that my daughter will see the joy of it all and that she will learn from me and desire such a calling in her own life. And that she will do it so much better than I.
