Can you think of a task you were given that terribly overwhelmed you with fear and yet joyful anticipation?
For me the task/mission was motherhood. Let me know if you can relate.
I believe all Children are the most precious gifts and a great responsibility.
Motherhood can be extremely overwhelming. Specifically the responsibility of filling their inquisitive minds with the things they will need to be wise, virtuous, men and women of integrity.
Children (the gifts) make the journey fulfilling, humbling, joyous and humorous. They often guide the journey with simply profound questions. My only task is to give them truthful Answers. These are just a sampling of the wonderful questions I get to Answer.
Some Questions they thought about for a while before asking like:
·Mommy if smoking is so bad why do they sell cigarettes?
I said -Because often people are more concerned with gaining money then helping others. And you have to remember no one forces anyone to buy the cigarettes.
·Mommy how does person X have a baby without a husband?
that answer could be a blog post in itself
Some are sweet and easy like:
·Mommy I have no money for a present do you want me for Christmas?
·When you get to heaven can you text me and let me know if they have toys up there?
Yet others I did not think I would have to discuss just yet like:
·Why do some people not like brown people?
·What does sexy mean?
How would you Answer these questions for Children under age 9?
Have you ever had a child ask you a question that left you speechless?
Love to hear it!
