They try my patience, they make me crazy, they make things come out of my mouth I never thought I would say (“Why is there poop in this plant?”), they keep me up at night and wake me up early, they throw tantrums and I might even throw one back…but once and awhile you get moments like this where everyone is smiling despite the meltdowns and the heartache and my hope is restored, we can do this!!! We are making good memories and sticking it out living, loving and growing together. The good outshines the tough: the yard wildflower gifts with sticky popsicle kisses, the Sunday morning snuggle time with, “I love you, Mommy”, the teenager that confides in you. I am so blessed to be their mom, to have this awesome trust from the Lord to raise them…my cup runneth over. To all the moms in the trenches 👊🏻🙌🏻 you’ve got this and we are in it together. You don’t have to be perfect to be amazing. You are enough and you are amazing. Happy Mother’s Day!
