April Thomas isn’t super mom. But wearing a cape makes life so much more fun.
Plenty of moms envision themselves as super mom, but I not only have an authentic cape in my closet, I wear it proudly.
Whether it’s the school car line, household chores or a business meeting in Atlanta, this super mom uses what I like to call my God-given talents to make life interesting. I carry duct tape and scissors in my purse since you can never be too prepared. I create marketing plans by day and bake (OK, buy) cookies for class parties by night.
My family adore (OK, tolerate) my sense of humor yet my detail-oriented nature takes vacation planning to a whole new level. I know the location of the restroom in nearly every retail store and restaurant in my current town and also on each exit of I-95 in three states. I can fix anything with my hot glue gun but will never camp again. My husband calls me blessed yet wonders if clipping coupons can be considered an addiction.
Through it all, God uses the unusual, hilarious and sometimes humiliating moments of my life to reveal something important. Sometimes it’s motivational and sometimes its correction and even other times it’s just plain funny. But before I’m off to save the day and most likely create a scene somewhere, somehow, I want to share His message through my life’s daily adventures.
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
