A blog I read, Storing Up Treasures, recently wrote this post on motherhood. It really hit home for me. After many years of infertility, sometimes it’s hard to say that this mom stuff is really hard and that alot of days it’s no fun. Because I wouldn’t want anyone to think I’m not thankful or don’t love my kids more than anything. I am thankful and do love my kids more than anything, but that doesn’t change the fact that being a mom is hard.
I so appreciate that she brings us to Jesus. For me, it’s my time with the Lord the past few weeks that has kept me sane. Even thought it’s probably only been 10 minutes a day of “quiet time”, it’s been that respite I’ve needed to fill me up. When I don’t take that time (like today), I’m an impatient, crabby, awful mess of a mom. Ok, well even when I do have my quiet time I can be an impatient, crabby, awful mess but it seems alot less of a mess when I start my morning with Jesus.
If you’re a mom, take a few minutes to read her post. I hope you’ll be encouraged. And remember today that you’re right where you should be.
Have a blessed weekend!
