Motherhood

Motherhood. Where is the manuel for it?

There are days I think I have things figured out. That with God's help, I am doing ok as a mom. The kids get along with each other, I don't have to repeat myself all day. No one is crying, its a good day. I'm rocking motherhood!

Then there are days I think that I have dreamed the previous days of being a mom because I have no idea how to be a mother. The kids are fighting, I have no food for breakfast, I'm tired, and I haven't even gotten out of bed yet.

Oh, how I live for the in-between days. The days when my kids fuss, I yell, we forgive, we eat together, and end our day sitting in the living room watching tv as a family.

It isn't a perfect day, but its a good day. A good family day. And that reminds me that there are bad days and good days in the motherhood journey.

In the end, I'm so glad to be the mom of four precious treasures. Good days or bad days, they are days God gave to us to live for Him, to encourage others and give Him glory. If I'm doing those things then my day as a mother has been good. If I didn't do those things then I will ask forgiveness of my forgiving God and try again the next day(Lord willing).

Motherhood is a journey. One that must be prayed over daily. Its an important job, a hard job but one that God is willing to help us with!!!!
