Two More Hands Please

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 11:01 AM
When doing things around the house holding on to one child or another I often have the thought that it would be nice to have a couple more hands. But then I think of all I do with the two I do have and know that I would just get myself completely overwhelmed if I had two more hands to work with. God, in His infinite wisdom, definately knew what He was doing when He limited us to two hands.




However, I do believe that He meant for us moms to have extra hands another way. Throughout scripture we are admonished to love one another. As a mom, that loving of other moms comes through supporting each other and helping each other out. This is often easier said than done since we all have so many responsibilities in our own homes. However, if we make the effort to help each other out, we all benefit. We don't feel like we have to be perfect in front of each other. We build stronger friendships. And we get more done. I'm very grateful for the moms in my life (especially my mom and mil) who are willing to pitch in a be a part of my life in so many tangible ways in addition to just "being" in my life. They are true blessing to me and make me want to be a blessing too.
