Character is such a hard thing for me as a mom to wrap my head around. I want to teach my children to love others and to have a character that oozes love, but what does how is that done? How does that play out in real life?
Can I just take a moment and rant a little bit about how stressful it is to raise 2 little women. It is my job as their mom to show them what it is to be a strong, confident, fun, loving and Godly woman. To be an example to them every day of Jesus’ love. So stressful! Then you add in the craziness of the world around us, and the pressure put on us to be the picture of perfection. We have to be beautiful, funny, skinny, driven, and stay at home, but then work because of women’s Lib. The list can go on and on and on about all the things a woman should be. I know it’s the same for men I just can’t give you a first hand about how they deal with that. Sorry gentlemen.
We all want someone who understands us. Someone we can turn to that understands our pain. My example is just in my parenting, but it’s in everything we experince. From our insecurities to our anger issues, our addictions, our temptations in everyday life. No one wants to feel alone
You can’t have darkness where the light is. What light won’t do, however, is move what needs to move. I turned that light on and Elsa did not magically get up and move herself from under my foot. I had to intentionally remove her, and put her where she belongs. (the next morning)
I’m a mom… A nanny… A wife… A daughter of God… And an utter disaster! This Is real talk in the middle of this crazy, fun, chaotic, messed up world. As a mom I try really hard to raise my tiny humans to function…
