You’re Doing Your Best Mama, I Know You Are…

This whole motherhood thing, doesn’t come with an instruction manual, and that’s because there is not one right way to do it. Why? Because God gave those sweet little babies to YOU, not another mama. He gave them to YOU. And YOU my sweet friend are the only one who can love them as God intended. And that, mama is a beautiful blessing.

The “Perfect” Mom

What does that even mean? When people say it, do they even realize what they’re saying? Perfect.. Schm-erfect — there is NO SUCH THING as a perfect mom, nor will there ever be, so stop trying!

You’re Not Raising Little Brats… You’re Raising Little Kids

Yesterday evening we went out to dinner for my grandma’s birthday — nothing fancy, just the local Mexican joint. But, as we were eating dinner, the chaos that was our table was certainly getting the attention of nearly every single person in the restaurant. It was our whole family, so it was a table of 15+, including 6 kids, 1st grade and under.

Resting the Body, the Mind and the Soul

What does it {truly} feel like to rest? I find I ask myself this question quite often. I don't know if I even really know what it means to rest. I constantly feel like I am trying to get ahead.. do one more thing before bed.. just get things done. It's exhausting. Life is exhausting. We were never made to go, go, go. We all need that time to rest. Reset our minds. Re-charge our bodies. Rejuvenate our souls. That's the way God intended it.

Stop Trying to be “That Mom”

So stop, mama... I beg you... please stop! Those life moments you see as you scroll are merely highlights -- the perfect highlights. The highlights she wants the world to see, not the ones she doesn't. Underneath it all, she's just like you and I: Scattered most days, unsure of how she'll make it through and a cup of coffee away from complete madness.
