It’s confession time again!!!
I’m sure you’ve noticed that these confessions are usually not positive things. I’ve confessed that I don’t clean my son’s room enough, and that I often feel discontent with life. I’ve told you about the
time times that I’ve caught my son drinking spoiled milk from an old sippy cup. I’ve told you about my struggle with comparing my kids to the children around them, and about how it makes me feel better when I see other kids misbehaving too. I’ve laid it all out there for you, and this series is far from over, but I wanted to make a different confession today. One of the most important confessions of all.
I love my kids. a lot. Yes, I am an extremely imperfect mother. I make a lot of mistakes, and I don’t even come close to “having it all together. But I’m doing my best and praying (a lot!) and that’s really all I can do.
I love them, and that is something I do well. I may not always show it in the best ways, but I adroe my kids, and I do everything I can to make sure they know that, and to take care of them, and that’s what matters most.
If you are having a mom that’s worn out, and having a tough time, remember that… We’re all imperfect, we all have those moments that we are not proud of. But we love our kids. And we’re doing everything we can to take care of them. And that matters far more than the little things we tend to stress about.
What are you doing today to be less stressed about being the perfect mama and more focused on being a loving yet imperfect mama?
