Those who know me in real life know about the Clue-by-Four.  I speak of it often.  What is the Clue-by-Four? Well, let me tell you about it…

When God is trying to tell you something, teach you a lesson, or just get your attention and you aren’t being receptive, I like to say He sometimes whacks you upside the back of your head with the Clue-by-Four.  Most recently, I got this particular brand of revelation with the loss of my job.  Then I got another one when I went grocery shopping this week.

Just three short days ago, I wrote the first post of this blog.  Two days later, I took BittyGirl shopping with me while SuperDad stayed home with CityGirl.  As I was making my way around the grocery store, BG started getting fussy in the infant carrier.  I am not one of those mothers who can spend much time listening to her baby cry and I still had a good bit of my list to get.  So I decided to take her out and carry her.  I held her up on my shoulder while using the other arm to steer and push the now heavily laden shopping cart.

As I walked down an aisle, a woman passed me and said, “Now that’s a super mom!”  Seriously. I stopped in my tracks, looked up towards the heavens and whispered, “Ten-four good buddy.”  I get it.  I so get it.  This is what I’m supposed to be doing.  These girls are my life’s work, the lasting mark I will leave on this earth.  Loud and clear, God, loud and clear.

I’m still haivng some issues adjusting, but it will come with time.  I still won’t be perfect, but this is some of the best on the job training I have and will ever get.
