"Mama, what does it mean to be mahweed?" Anna Ruth asked me the other day.
"What do you think it means, Ru Bear?" I returned.
"It means to be mahweed and be a Papa and Mama together. And to love each other. And forgiveness. And being patient together" she answered.
There are many areas as a parent in which I feel I fail to be the best that I can be.....or even close sometimes. But, I will admit that this brief conversation was a moment of truth for me.......a glimpse into the larger picture of life and parenting. If this is the view my three and a half year old little girl has of marriage, then we must be doing something right.
Thank you, God, and Ru Bear, for allowing me a little glimpse into the big picture. I needed that.
