Ten Things I Believe



Today's Working Mommy Wednesday prompt was to list 10 Things I Believe. After getting the "I believe in Crystal Light, 'cause I believe in me!" jingle out of my head, I was surprised how quickly these flowed. I usually hem and haw over a list because I want to make sure I haven't forgotten anything. But I'm going with my gut on this one, and leaving it as is. Curious to see what others chose!

  1. I believe Jesus Christ is the son of God, was crucified for my sins, died and rose on the third day and sits at the right hand of God.
  2. I believe I am more than the sum of my parts.
  3. I believe that even though my mother is losing her memory and may even someday forget me entirely, she loves me with all her heart, the way only a mother could.
  4. I believe that if I were put in a position where I needed super-human strength to save my children, I could complete the task as if it was a simple as snapping my fingers.
  5. I believe some wounds never entirely heal, but the scars can help define your character for the better.
  6. I believe in the power of love, chosen love, to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
  7. I believe that school's main function is to teach you how to learn, and once you know that, the world is your classroom; it's up to you to take advantage of it.
  8. I believe children keep you young, whether they are yours or someone else's, through their innocence and curiosity.
  9. I believe laughter is the best medicine, especially when joined by your babies, your husband, your siblings, your parents, or your best girlfriends.
  10. I believe I am blessed beyond measure and will never fully appreciate my good fortune.

Those are fantastic beliefs - isn't it calming to sit down and think about what you believe sometimes?

Love your list, especially the one about school. The world is an amazing place just ready to be explored :) I also wrote my list from the heart without a lot of "hemming and hawing".

Children definitely keep you young! At least until they become adults. Then that makes us OLD.
