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 can’t.

He knows my heart on those hard days, yet I think I have to rely on my own strength. It’s not how it works. HE gives us the strength, the grace, the boost to keep going. We just have to keep working hard to see it.

If today you wake up feeling like you can’t go on, I encourage you to stop using your own strength and start relying on His. Prioritize, and tackle the day. YOU can do it. It may be messy, and that’s ok. But YOU can do it. He will help you.

xoxo

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…

Dear Mom {Day 14}

Dear Mom, In my 5 short years of being a mom, I know a few things to be true: -whenever you have to be somewhere, someone will poop/need to potty/spill on an outfit RIGHT before you have to leave. Always. -Kids are terribly indecisive. Limit their choices! It still empowers them without you wanting to…

Dear Mom {Day 13}

Dear Mom, Being a parent is so much more than I ever dreamed. I didn’t have a full grasp on how being a mother would change my life until Brayden was around 3 months old. I started to come out of the newborn fog and life quickly picked up speed. We were talking about the…
