I read a post not too long ago, about not letting Satan steal our motherhood. It really got me thinking, how often do I let him do that. How easy that actually is, and how often I let him win! A simple thing such as getting frustrated at Noah, raising my voice, paying too much attention to my phone, etc.
Satan loves that, and then he is smiling real big when I am feeling down or feeling like I'm failing.
"Be as little children", this saying is so simple and so true. Although they can be hard at times, they are truly our teachers. They appreciate the simple things, they love when we play with them and interact with them. They have endless stories, and could play the same game for hours. You know what though? They will only be this little once. I want them to have memories of mom and dad playing "stinky feet" rather then us yelling at them. So friends, that motherhood is yours. A gift from God!
Today and everyday, I will remember that God loves me no matter what my house looks like. If there are piles of laundry that needs to be folded or dishes that needs to be done.
To all you mothers:
The very fact that you worry about being a good mom
means that you already are one.
