I needed this today. Maybe you do too.
Leave Pinterest, Instagram, and Martha Stewart Living alone for the day. Stop looking at what everyone else is doing. You know the messy of real life doesn’t get posted on Instagram anyway.
You are right where you are supposed to be. You have been given everything you need to be the mom you want to be. The mom He wants you to be. The mom He’s made you to be.
Don’t try to be anyone else. Your kids need YOU. (<– tweet this)
You, with your off-key singing and your burnt cookies and your late arrival to church every week.
You, with your crumb-dusted floor and your piles of laundry and your sink full of dishes.
You, with your tired smile and your open arms and your daily “I love you”s. You’re enough.
God doesn’t expect you to be Pinterest-perfect.
Don’t expect yourself to be.
You know how much you love those scrubby little patience-testers?
He loves you more than that. Just the way you are.
Just the way He’s made you to be.
Do you know a mom who needs to hear this today?
