Mommas...we've GOT THIS

Your shoulders and neck begin to feel stiff.

Your head feels like a dense cloud has enveloped it.

You feel your teeth slowly grinding back and forth, back and forth.

Your heart beats quicker in your chest under your pajamas that are freshly covered in spit up and it's 3 p.m.'s okay.

You've got this.

We all have these days. These moments. These little hiccups in time.

They are hiccups. They go away. They feel like they will never end but eventually you realize that moment is gone.

I've had several of the moments. Moments where I wanted to curl up in a ball in the middle of the bathroom floor with the door locked. It's the only room with a lock on the door otherwise I would prefer my bedroom.

I've cried. I've screamed. I've had to apologize for the screaming. Does anyone else detest having to apologize? It's not the actual apologizing. It's the admitting that I've done something wrong.

Why is it so hard to admit that we are wrong?'s okay.

It's okay to be wrong.

It's okay to apologize.

It's okay to break down.

It's okay to have to apologize again.

And again.

And again.

It's okay for your kids to learn the art of forgiveness from their momma.

We are not perfect.

God knows we are not perfect.

He doesn't want us to be perfect. 

You know why?

Because He wants us to need Him. 

He wants us to fall at His feet and ask for help. He wants us to realize that on our own we are not fully capable but with Him at our side we've got this.

You know what else?

It's okay to be tired. 

It's okay to feel like the weight of the responsibilities around you as a mom are too much. 

Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28. 

You know what the awesome thing about this verse is?

It's incredibly true. 

Every time I've laid it all down at the feet of my Lord and confessed that I desperately need help and that I need a break. I think I've even said "freakin' break" but you know what...He still listened. HE HAS DELIVERED.

The kids will nap.

Family will offer to take the kids. 

Someone brings me a drink from the coffee shop. 

The Lord works in all ways



So that spit up on your pajamas at 3 p.m? It's perfectly okay. 

Struggle through mommas. With God...we've got this.
