With Mother’s Day coming this weekend I wanted to re-share a post from last summer. A day and a life of being a mom. Don’t lose heart mamas, you’re not alone.
“It’s Been a Tough Day!”
This mom bun has accomplished a lot today. Woke up with challenging children that caused me to have to cancel our plans for the day (and an opportunity to see my friends.)
-Because being a mom comes first.
-Because my kiddos needed rest after a long fun weekend, and they also needed rest.
-Because my strong-willed child was. Just. Done. With. Life at 9 am and she just Couldn’t. Even. Anymore.
You know because “I’m the worst mom ever.” I prayed and kept mommyin’ along. By the time the behaviors of all the children were done, and I got around to making breakfast it was 10:30 (don’t worry they had been having snacks to tide them over, which the remnants were all over my kitchen as evidence).
I felt God telling me to be outdoors with my kids and spend time out in the beautiful weather planting our vegetable garden together. Ultimately it ended up getting done, but the house was destroyed in the process, and the two-year-old was buck naked in the mud.
One child helped with the garden the entire time though😇 The rest of them…..well. Going with the flow…
Got everyone fed, cleaned up, and the Littles napping, and all I want to do is devour a bowl of ice cream and check out after our day, but I made a commitment to myself to work out daily. So here I go, and I know I will be happy I did and was intentional about taking care of myself.
Mommying is hard guys, but don’t give up. The sacrifices are worth it, seek guidance and strength from Jesus and He. Will. Give. It. You are worth it. Your kids are worth it.
