Do You Feel Invisible?

Motherhood often feels like a thankless calling.  We love, nurture, work, worry, and perform a never-ending list of household tasks, only to get up tomorrow and start it all over again.  Tiring?  For sure.  I think many of you probably feel like I do and wonder if anyone even notices all that you do.

I recently ran across a video clip that describes this feeling.  It also explores the fact that even when it feels like you are invisible and nobody sees or appreciates your efforts, God sees. No sacrifice is too small for him to notice. He sees every little nose you wipe, every cookie you bake, every skinned knee you kiss better, every pair of socks you lovingly fold. He sees every tear of disappointment you shed when things don't go the way you'd hoped, and hears every heartfelt prayer you offer. Remember that you are doing a great work. I hope all of my followers and friends have a great Mother's Day. Don't forget to reassure the women in your life that they are not invisible, and that their efforts are appreciated.

I needed to hear that today. I'm not a mother. But aren't all of us working at being the best we can be, giving of ourselves to make the world around us a better place.

At least we who follow The Father are that way. I needed to hear "But God sees."

Thanks for being one of the lights The Father put on my path to make the way ahead easier. Roland

I've never heard anyone say, "It's okay if they don't see." That was inspiring. What a good reminder. :) Happy Mom's Day!
