cape wearing mom and family

About

I’m not super mom, but wearing a cape makes life so much more fun. And I actually do have a pink homemade cape in my closet. It has an “A” on it, of course. Even though the kids are grown now, there are still plenty of days I consider whipping it out. What can I say… I am my own little party.

Truth be told, I almost threw out my cape.

I’m no longer the busy working mom shuttling kids to activities, fixing dinner, helping with homework, etc. etc. etc. My role is now more of a friend, a listening ear, an encouraging word. It’s a slower pace. It’s a quieter place. I miss the hustle and bustle, but I’ve done my job. My four kids are running their own circuses. And I get to sit back, watch, and laugh. It’s quite rewarding.

But that cape? Well I kept it. Because even adult kids need a crazy, cape-wearing mom to come to the rescue sometimes. And it makes trips to their place of employment a lot more fun. We are sorry for the chaos we caused in the Chick Fil A drive thru that one time.

My husband soars through these adventures with me sometimes shaking his head and sometimes ordering holiday themed sunglasses with detachable mustaches. Yes on purpose. #twopeasinapod

Through it all, God uses the unusual, hilarious and sometimes humiliating moments of my life to reveal something important. Sometimes itโ€™s motivational and sometimes it’s correction and other times itโ€™s just plain funny. Now Iโ€™m off to save the day and most likely create a scene somewhere. Follow the laughter, look for the cape, and you’ll find me.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.  Proverbs 3:5-6
