Have you every wondered what exactly a ‘good mom’ is? And more importantly, have you doubted that you are one?
I’m over at MomLife Today. Here’s a short snippet:
I’ve been struggling lately with this debilitating feeling that I’m doing it all wrong with this whole motherhood thing. I can’t seem to get a schedule in place, I’m grouchy in the mornings, I occasionally yell at my kids when my patience has worn thin, and I just can’t keep up with all the other super-moms around me (or on Pinterest, for that matter).
There are many days lately when I have felt like a failure of a mom. Days when I can’t even enjoy my children because I’m too wrapped up with all the things I’m doing wrong.
Through the counsel of others, I’ve learned a very important truth.
The love I have for my children is enough.
I don’t need to wear myself out trying to juggle a million balls in the air, all in the name of being a “good mom”.
