Before I became a parent, I would have to admit that thought crossed my mind more than once in regards to parenting.
But just because a parents’ time isn’t all theirs anymore doesn’t necessarily mean they “have no life.”
Just because we draw blanks when you ask what we do when we’re not with our kids doesn’t mean we have no life.
It just means that our kids are our life.
And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Tell me, how often do you have a guy run up to you with a hug every time he sees you?
Or give you kisses on your eyes, nose, eyebrows, cheeks, chin and ears?
How often do you get a guy to say he loves you as much as mother Mary loved baby Jesus?
How often do you have a girl willing to share with you all her secrets?
So I might be so wiped by the end of the day that I don’t even check my mail.
And I might be so swamped that if I complete 15% of the items on my to-do list, it’s a good day.
But I do have a life.
More than that, I have a legacy, because children are the hope of the future.
Nothing can beat that life.
