Being a mom is hard. Doesn’t matter if you work or stay home. It’s hard. By hard, I mean challenging.
Temper tantrums. Yelling. Time Outs. Consistency. Exhaustion.Those are just a few words to describe my days with my Finn.
I don’t relax. Even through the night, I’m randomly waking up thinking I hear Finn crying. Being a mom is a 24/7 job.
Being a mom, does have it’s rewards. My son’s hugs, kisses, and I love you‘s are priceless. He shows me God’s love. He just wants my attention. He longs for mommy. He is a momma’s boy – I love that. I could play with him for 2 hours – then get up to go to the bathroom and when I come back – he’s saying “mommy, play you?” On our car rides to work/school, he asks me to pray. That melts my heart. And even at 2 years old, he’s already told me he “loves Jesus.”
So on the hard days, what do I do? I rest in Him. I rest in my Savior. He’s the only one who can give me peace, perspective, perseverance, and patience. How’s that for all P’s? HAHA! I can’t take credit – that was from Ashley.
I hope this truth filled post will encourage you other moms.
