Welcome to Inspirational Thursday where I share with you the
things in life that are inspiring to me in way or another!
This week we are receiving some beautiful inspiration from my
youngest daughter who has tenderly written a Mom Post.
So whether you are a young Mom, a seasoned Mom or now a
grandmother, I feel certain that this reflective, honest and open
writing will resonate with you!
Grab a comfy chair, I have to show you what
Motherhood looks like from our viewpoint.
This is our silly, magical little group...
our precious chaotic,
beautiful gift from God!
A perfect mix of pure goodness and delight that has
been entrusted to us.
So, please join us today on the journey of being MOM.
~From One Mom To Another~
Rebecca Anne Wheeler
From one mom to another mom, I want you to know that I know your job is hard.
I know it’s demanding, exhausting and sometimes nerve wrenching.
I also know it’s the most wonderful thing you have ever done or will ever do.
Maybe your child won't walk until they are well over a year, maybe they won't eat their brussel sprouts, peas or
squash like the kid down the street, but would rather prefer a diet of cheese and tortillas.
won't read as fast...
play as hard...
they’ll make you laugh until your stomach hurts and maybe they’ll make you cry when you realize how innocent
and pure they view the world.
Maybe instead of constantly reading all the latest parenting material out there and constantly driving ourselves
crazy comparing, we should be rejoicing in what
makes our children different.
Because your child will always be different and isn’t that something to celebrate?
Should we not be more proud to be mothers of good, earnest people rather than moms of super achievers?
Should we not spend more time just being in the moment with our child and stop wondering
“when will my child do that” or “why doesn’t he/she do it that way”.
Do these things matter?
My answer is no.
The way God made them and intended them to be.
Sometimes the most beautiful flowers take longer to bloom & sometimes life passes us right on by when we’re
too busy worrying about tomorrow.
So take today, leave the labels and the comparisons behind and don’t look back.
God gave you an amazing gift when He made you a mother and it’s because He knew you could do it.
So don’t stress, don’t over analyze, don’t worry about things that aren’t worth worrying about-enjoy your child,
because tomorrow your child will be another day older and probably on to the next thing that makes them
Love what makes them, them.
