4) You have the great opportunity of raising boys who will eventually be wonderful husbands and fathers (something that our world needs). I really can't imagine a greater feeling of accomplishment than knowing that YOU made a difference in this world by raising up REAL men. I often think about how it will feel to see my son's become nurturing husbands and fathers and it really makes my heart swell with pride. I can already see my 10 year old starting to have these qualities as he cares for and rescues animals and has such a passion for caring for the helpless. My 3 year old already tells me I'm beautiful, that my cooking is delicious, and thanks me for cleaning house. Now, I don't know about you, but I think that's pretty awesome! :)
I loved everything on your list, but this one really made my heart sing. I was always afraid that I would be bad at raising a son, but seeing their cute little faces made me realize that I could do a great job at raising them into wonderful men.
