Patience is not my strong suit…..
and I could blame my raised voice issues on a past relationship, but that was over a decade ago, so I take ownership now….
Being a mom was all I ever wanted to be. Growing up, I knew I didn’t want a career, so I didn’t need to go to college. I just wanted to be a mom to a BUNCH of lil blessings.
I didn’t go to college, I don’t have a career, and I did become a mom to two lil blessings. God knew that was the perfect “bunch” for me.
I am a planner, like a clean house, and organization is an extra bonus.
This makes being a mom hard for me.
Things rarely go as planned, a clean and organized home is not what I have with my lil blessings. Definitely not what I envisioned.
My #1 frustration as a mom is the lack of first time obedience. It is a constant work in progress, and I strive to give grace as God gives to me time and time again.
I hate folding socks, and my kiddos know if clean socks aren’t in their drawers to go and find the sock basket…..yes they’re clean, just not folded or put away.
It is true when they say no one can break your heart like your child. I must remind myself daily that it isn’t personal, they’re sinners just like I am. (Thanks Mom)
I’m not a perfect mom.
I’m imperfect in many more ways than I’d like to admit.
This year instead of getting depressed and seeing each failure as a reason to retreat….
I’m falling forward…..
Reminding myself that imperfect is how God made me….
So that I can become more like Him…..
Become the exact imperfect mom He created me to be. <— Share the Imperfection Truth!
