How are you doing?
Were you up rocking your precious, sobbing bundle at 3 a.m.?
Are you washing ANOTHER pile of bedding after yet ANOTHER potty training fail?
Do you wonder if you’re the only one who doesn’t like her kid sometimes?
Are you trying to figure out how you’re going to find the time to clean the bathroom, wash the dishes, drive the kids to practice, help with homework, make dinner, buy the groceries, volunteer at church, re-attach G.I. Joe’s arm, and get the stain out of the carpet? Today.
Are you wondering if the shouting match you had with your teenager this morning about the length of her skirt is going to scar her for life ?
You don’t need to be perfect. You’re doing the best you can. And your best is different from my best, and everyone else’s best.
It’s OK if we do it differently. Your kid is different than mine. They all need different things.
And you’re never alone.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
