Tonight, a friend of mine posted a question on Facebook. One of those exasperated calls for help, where you just want to know that you’re not the only one having a hard time with this “Mom” thing.
She ended with the statement, “Maybe I’m doing something wrong.”
I know that this friend does her best as a mom. She loves the Lord, and provides a great home for her kids, but struggles like the rest of us. It broke my heart that she was so discouraged. My answer was this:
Actually, we all do *something* wrong as moms. That’s where we need the Lord. We will make mistakes, and it will be hard, but the hope comes in the Grace of Jesus. That our children sometimes learn more from our motherly mistakes than our successes.
Praying for peace for you, and… no, you’re not the only one who feels that way. God chose YOU for your children, so even though you’re not perfect, you are just what they need.
What do you think? What would you tell a mom who thinks she’s doing it wrong?
