This simple statement speaks volumes. At the end of the day, my kids don’t need all of the emotional baggage that comes from my “need” to be a perfect mom. They shouldn’t suffer because of the unrealistic expectations I put on myself and sometimes on them. They need, they deserve, me at my best. They deserve an intentional, engaged, caring, strong, happy, peaceful, wise mom. A perfect mom? Not likely. The best mom I can be? Absolutely! Praying for all you mamas out there. God’s grace is sufficient!
