I must admit I am coming into this Mother’s Day weary. I’m feeling the weight of all those “mommy” “mommy” “mommy”‘s uttered during the week.
Parenthood is not for the faint of heart!
So I’ve been asking the Lord – help me to be more patient. Help me not to feel grumpy. Help to serve happily.
And you know what I think the antidote to mommy angst is?
God, I thank you for my three kids. I thank you that they want to be with me. That they think I know everything. That they want me to hold them.
I know the years will pass and I will wish for hugs and “mommy to the rescue” once more.
Galatians 6:9 says it well for us, “Do not grow weary in doing good, for in season, you will reap a harvest if you do not give up.”
Don’t give up moms! You are raising the next generation of leaders. Happy Mother’s Day and way to go!
