Do you REALLY believe that everything will be just fine??
Life. Life can stink sometimes and you just want to throw in the towel. Been there and almost done that numerous times. I can’t do that though.
As a mom, you can’t throw in the towel. You can’t just walk away. You are the person that holds your family together. When your kid gets hurt who do they call…Mom. When your kid wakes in the middle of the night who do they call or come to….Mom. When your kid needs something for school who do they tell….Mom. Mom, Mom, MOM!! You wanna change your name right??
Yes, life can stink sometimes. Your kids can get on your nerves, things aren’t going well at work, things aren’t going well with your marriage, things aren’t going well with friendships/family relationships, your household has been sick for weeks, your home printer won’t work, etc. You just want to SCREAM!! Go get your pillow and scream into it. I’ll wait.
Feel better?? I just screamed into my pillow also. lol It helped a little but all of my problems are still here. They didn’t just disappear. So what do I do? PRAY. I pray because God is the only one who can keep me sane when life stinks. He is the only one who helps me to be patient. He is the one who helps me to realize that I can’t throw in the towel.
You can’t throw in the towel either. Whatever you are going through right now may stink but it won’t stink forever. You’ll smell beautiful flowers before you know it.
As a mom, we wear A LOT of hats (have a lot of jobs). We’re moms for life. We’re always going to feel exhausted and that we can’t get it all done. We try to be the perfect mom. Not possible. Be a happy mom. The mom that lives in the moment. The mom that your children like to be around. Enjoy being a mom (even though it is demanding) in the end, Everything will be JUST fine!
