Wishful Thinking: The Power of Perfect Multi-Tasking (Erin)
As a mom, teacher, wife, friend, daughter and sister, not to mention a writer, I am currently spinning a LOT of balls in the air. The thing is, I enjoy all my roles and I feel like God has placed me in them. But, I've been following our Top 3 posts on Superpowers (the list is here, in case you've missed them) and it got me thinking: What one superpower would I want, if I could have a superpower?
At my house, we multi-task regularly, but we have some fails. One night this week, I may have temporarily forgotten that my youngest is a vegetarian (who likes bacon), resulting in her ingesting a supper consisting entirely of pumpkin bread and Halloween candy. Tonight, my husband and I may have miscommunicated, resulting in my son being left at a friend's house an hour longer than he planned, which, in turn, resulted in him being late for Youth Group.
At least I found my youngest and her doll matching SuperGirl costumes for Halloween--and I made the pumpkin bread. Who needs a balanced supper, really? So, yes, as a family, we multi-task a lot, but I wouldn't mind having some of Kara's SuperGirl powers, to make our multi-tasking a bit more productive--or at least just to protect my IQ!
Do you admire a Marvel or DC character and wish you had one of their superpowers? Which superpower would make your life easier?
