Thankful Thursday – My Middle Child

Middle children get a bad rap for being difficult, and well, mine has been challenging from day one, even before she was a “middle.” Though sweet, she has always been especially stubborn, especially independent and prone to temper tantrums and meltdowns.

But I love her so much!

I am so thankful that God has blessed her with a mind of her own, an independent nature and a tenacity to take a stand for what she believes in. Right now she might be taking a stand for extra dessert (and losing) but imagine what she might accomplish with that later in life!

I’m so thankful that God has used raising her to teach me many things as well.

  1. To see the blessings in everything that makes her difficult right now.
  2. To impress me with the importance of training her up in the way she should go.

  3. To teach me patience and gentleness and persistence.
  4. To show me more about God’s nature.

    (I imagine I am often like a difficult child, too.)

God is so good! All the time.

I know how middle girls can be – frustrating and yet endearing. My daughter is sensitive and it took me a while to realize that was a GOOD quality, not just a difficult trait. Each child is a unique treasure!
