No Perfect Mom Found Here

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!

    I don’t know anyone who is a perfect mom but I do know young adults that can see through imperfection in their mom and expect a practically perfect mom. With God’s grace we raise the children God gave us for His glory. This was such a sweet post. Thank you for linking it up over at WholeHearted Home this week.

    I can so relate. I have always wanted to be a mom as well, and even though I did go to college it was for Early Childhood classes so I could be a better mom. So you can imagine my surprise when after having 4 blessings, I thought this is soooo not what I imagined it would be like. Thankful to know that I’m not alone on this imperfect motherhood journey and that God’s grace is a beautiful thing.

      Oh yes, the differences motherhood brings from the dreams we had as little girls. How much we grow throughout motherhood, and yet we are supposed to be raising up our kids?! Thanks God for His new mercies and grace every day! :) Blessings!
