If it were hard....

I'm reading a book right now called "I hate it when exercise is the answer! A fitness program for the soul!" I am totally loving it because the author (Emily Watts) is real and funny and practical. (Thanks Al for introducing her to me!) I highly recommend any of her books "Confessions of an unbalanced woman" or "Being the Mom" are 2 of my favs. ANYWAY! I am reading a chapter on the value of moms and she quoted the movie "A League of Their Own". It was when Geena Davis, the star player, is quiting and says; "It just got too hard."
Tom Hanks, the coach, responds in the most amazing way, "It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great."

Ahhhh to all the mommies or mommies to be or honorary mommies. "the hard is what makes US great!"

Emily Watts posed a question "what if it's the hard that makes us grow and sends us in search of resources we didn't know we had and drives us to the arms or our Savior for answers we wouldn't have been smart enough to see ourselves?"

I love my kids and today I even love "the hard"!
