There are those days I feel like I’m just a mom. Just a mom who’s purpose is to wipe poopy bottoms, clean runny noses, cook and wash laundry – a robot sometimes (Beep bop boop. “You want breakfast? Beep bop ding. Here’s your breakfast.”}. But, I’m tossing that negativity in the trash.
Being a Mama is so important. It’s so purposeful. We just have to see it. We are raising little ones to go out and be someone great for this world. That’s not something to take lightly. We are helping them to become who they were born to be. If we look at Mama as our ministry, it becomes so purposeful to be a mama.
I pray this every night, “Lord, help me become the mom I need to be for my children. So, I can help them become who You want them to be. Thank you for choosing me to be their mom. Amen.”
Sure. I mess up. But, there’s always grace. I get caught up in feeling like I’m just here for everyone else. But that’s when I need a 15-minute break to do something I love (a recharge and a moment to be thankful). I have purpose, a wonderful purpose. And so do you, Mama.
