I sometimes tell people that I used to be smart. I guess that deep down I still consider myself fairly smart, but my opinion of myself is much less than what it once was. The Lord uses all sorts of things to humble us. I think that I am definitely losing brain cells with each child!
Several years ago, I was writing and one of my children interrupted me for something. After taking care of whatever the crisis was, I tried to go back to writing but my pencil was gone. Hmm. Maybe it’s in the kids’ room. No. Maybe I put it on the counter. No. The bathroom? No. Finally, totally exasperated I said out loud "Where?!….. Oh, there it is."
It was in my mouth.
