“The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.”
Initially written by William Ross Wallace in praise of motherhood, I medidate on these words and add- if you are a two parent household where both work out of the house, then the cradle rocking is equal opportunity, which is why there are several exhausted moms and dads at work today.
Parenting continually forces us out of our comfort zone into decision making that ulitmately affects society….(no unecessary pressure, your next parenting mistake won’t ruin the world.) But it does provide enlightenment as to why parenting leaves me so tuckered out – each moment of encouraging, training, and disciplining builds on the next, creating an impact that far exceeds our immediate four walls.
Thank God, literally, we don’t have to go it alone.
