Motherhood is…Learning Grace

Grace. Unmerited Favor. Free Forgiveness.

Motherhood is learning to forgive myself for not always getting it right.

I yell at my kids. I don’t like it and sometimes I want to hate myself for it but then I’d be erasing all the things I do right. I don’t always serve them the healthiest food. I don’t read to them every night. I don’t play with them enough.

But they are healthy. They feel safe and secure in our home. They are happy. They are happy.

My boys know how much their Mama loves them.

So for everything else I give myself grace. Learning to forgive myself and doing my best to show up every day for my kids.
