Goodness, today was one of those days.
We had our life together this morning but by noon we were falling apart. There was a lot of yelling, disciplining, and disobeying.
Nobody tells you when you sign up for this motherhood gig what it really entails.
Our hormones and emotions are forever out of control. We cry because something is so cute. We cry because we are worried. We cry because we love them so much we can’t imagine our life without them. And other days we cry because it felt like it was the hardest day of our life.
Today was one of those days.
Today is one of those days where I’m thankful I get a new day with my kids.
I’m thankful for the new mercies God gives me every morning.
I’m thankful for grace.
I’m thankful for friends.
I’m thankful to be able to share life with you, my faithful followers.
This community is awesome.
I was literally sitting on the couch about to cry, just feeling completely overwhelmed, when my sweet friend and fellow blogger sent me the sweetest message. Her simple, “You are a great mom. I’ve been there.” Completely lightened my load. I felt understood.
Sometimes it’s the smallest words that have the biggest impact.
One kind word can really turn around someone’s whole day or evening.
I just want to remind you guys tonight…
You are doing a good job.
You are a good mom.
To the mom who’s had a day like mine… I’m sending you a virtual hug.
I want you to know you are not alone.
And YOU are a good mom.
