Dear Mom {Day 31}

Dear Mom,

I hope these letters encouraged you, inspired you, and let you know that you aren’t alone in this motherhood gig. It’s truly an adventure, one that changes with each passing day. There is nothing predictable about it, and maybe sometimes that’s the hardest part.

Our human nature is based on routines, but kids totally change that up. Instead of seeing that as a downfall, I have been trying to accept that it’s God’s way of pushing me and learning to lean on Him. It’s something I have to learn almost daily, because I try with my own strength to live this life. I can’t do it without Him.

Be encouraged, friends. You aren’t alone!

xoxo

The #write31days challenge is coming to an end this week, and although I am a little sad about it, I will be glad to be back to regular blogging! The challenge was a lot of fun for me– I did end up skipping a couple of days here and there because, well, LIFE sometimes demands…

Dear Mom {Day 24}

Dear Mom, There have been days that I think to myself “I can’t do another day like this. I just can’t.” They come in waves for all sorts of reasons– sick kids, no rest, breaking up arguments, or a ruined dinner. Countless times, I have looked toward the sky and said I can’t. I just…

Dear Mom {Day 23}

Dear Mom, Today, I have a challenge for you. Moms of all walks of life are busy, tired, maybe feeling unfulfilled, or are just having a bad day. Today, put aside your daily struggles and be a light to someone else. Maybe it’s paying for the coffee the person has behind you. Maybe it’s to…

Dear Mom {Day 20}

Dear Mom, There has been something weighing on me lately, almost like an epiphany of sorts. Something that I have been thinking about for weeks, but I am struggling to find the words to convey it properly. I guess I should preface by saying I have thought a lot about the “stuff” my kids have….

Dear Mom {Day 18}

Dear Mom, Every age has it’s thing: terrible twos, terrible threes, teenager drama, etc. It seems as if it is always something. I remember when Kenley was just sleeping through the night, then caught a cold. It was a cycle of sleep and no sleep that was wearing me down. I used to think “if…

Dear Mom {Day 15}

Dear Mom, Imperfection seems to be all around you. Am I right? There are always dirty dishes, always a mess to clean up, always something that could be organized, and don’t even get me started on the laundry situation. (Spoiler alert: We all have one.) If you wake up in the morning overwhelmed with your…
