Are you a weary mom? I must confess I have many days that I am.
Do you have days where you wonder – will my children ever arise and call me blessed as Proverbs 31:28 says?!
Oh the children have risen me in the night with wet beds and have risen up against me in anger – but during weary days the dream of being a super mom or of my children praising me fade. But then…I sit and ponder the blessings of being a mom.
Have you recognized the joy of being a mom?
I know one day the theme song of Sesame Street will play and my children will no longer come running.
I know a day will come when I sing this little light of mine and they’ll be too cool to put their finger up and sing with me.
I know a day will come when Spaghettios just will not do for lunch.
My daughter brings me babies to feed and rock regularly and it can get in the way of what I am trying to accomplish – but someday those wore out dolls will be packed up in a trash bag and left by the street.
Have I taken time to enjoy these moments that God has given me – these blessings?
There has been so much joy in this season and yet at times I’ve been too weary to recognize it.
So weary moms – let’s take time today to recognize the blessings and joys we have right now from being moms. Don’t try to look ahead to better days – enjoy today!
Let’s take a minute to build each other up and encourage each other – you are not alone! Share one thing you love about being a mom or one thing you would say to a weary mom.
And don’t forget to encourage the weary dads this Father’s Day!!! Daddies get tired too! I highly recommend you take the time to list 10 things you appreciate about your husband for Father’s Day this Sunday. Every dad needs to hear these things. I know he’ll enjoy it more than another tie!
