Can we just embrace the chaos and noise? Embrace the laundry and dishes? Embrace the floor littered with, well…everything??
I don't have a baby anymore...and, suddenly, for the first time it's okay because I know I will NEVER FORGET.
What if we stopped to really realize...really, truly believe...that the way we look is not the best thing any of us have to offer???
Moms, it is hard today. It will be hard tomorrow, to0. Different hard. But we really can do HARD things. And it is so GOOD, too. We just have to trust.
I wish I could tell her to have faith and trust Jesus...with her heart and her babies and her husband's addiction and her life.
Let go of the stressing and striving. Let go of distraction and discontentment. Let go of chasing perfection. Your kids don't want perfect...they just want you.
Thank goodness in the middle of all my striving and treading and spluttering and drowning, I realized we are not meant to live this life on our own.
