I saw a quote one time that read,
“There's no way to be a perfect mother, but a million ways to be a good one.”
How true! There is NO PERFECT MOTHER! But there is a perfect God!
This mother's day if you are finding yourself looking back at your motherhood journey whether it's been years or just a few months, and you're thinking there were things you know now that you wish you would've done, or not done, or opportunities you missed out on. Maybe things you should've said, but didn't, or things you said and shouldn't. Those times you should of been there. Tears you should of been the one to catch. Maybe there were those days when you felt like you were too hard, too stressed out, too emotional, too pushy, too overbearing, and too much of an annoyance to your kids. Or the times where you felt like you didn't pray over enough, laugh enough, talk enough, celebrate enough, or have fun enough with your kids. Maybe there were times you were late, and there were times you forgot. Or maybe you just flat out felt like you failed at being a mom miserably. Well...I have some good news!
THIS MOTHER'S DAY....give the best gift to yourself any mother can give......GRACE.
There is NO PERFECT MOM....there is only a perfect God. Rest in that! Rest in His love, perfection, grace and care. Forgive yourself...and give yourself Grace...and think about all the million of ways you
were are a good mom!!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
