The perennial dilemma …
One day we were wondering when our baby would roll over, the next we were so worried about her rolling off the bed and wished she didn't roll so soon.
One day we were wondering when our baby would start calling us "mummy", and the next we wish she would stop chanting for us incessantly.
One day we were wondering when she would take her first independent steps, and the next we were yelling for her to stop running away from us in a busy shopping mall.
One day we were amazed at how brilliant her question was, and the next we wished she would stop asking "why?"
During my pregnancy, I had wished that my daughter, the youngest of three, would not be a pushover. At a few months old, she displayed her extraordinary lung prowess. She turned out to be really good at screaming to get what she wants, so much so that even her two older brothers are afraid of her. My little princess is certainly not a pushover!
The next time you wish something for your child, be careful what you wish for! Make sure you are fully prepared for the abundance of blessings that come your way, and some traits might be so powerful, and well expressed, far beyond your expectations.
If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.– John 15:7
