A thought on motherhood

I was reading an article today about an artist named Liz Lemon Swindle...something she said really caught my attention.

"I knew that raising a family was the most important thing I would do in this life, and I didn't want the art to interfere with that.  I also knew I needed the Lord's help as an artist, and I could only expect him to do his part if I did mine.  So I made a choice when I had children that I would only paint after I put you all in bed.  I did my part, and the Lord did his."

I really thought that was was a reminder to me to put my kids first during the day while they are awake.
