"Mommy, did you know that even before I was in your tummy, you were the mommy I always wanted?" My three year old asks me.
"Yeah, and do you know that I will never stop loving you?" My six year old asks.
These were the comments made to me the other night by two of my children. Completely out of the blue.
I am far from a perfect mom. I get frustrated and overwhelmed easily. Sometimes I let my kids watch too much tv.
I also allow myself to feel guilty about so many things. Things that really don't matter that much, but I still let the guilt creep in anyways. Like the fact that I make my kids all take an afternoon quiet time, or that I'm not doing more crafts with them. Or that I don't have them in any extra activities. On any given day, I could be feeling guilty about these things plus about a hundred others.
And yet, they love me. They don't have a clue what pinterest says I should be doing, or what their friend from church's mom is doing. They don't know, and they don't care. The only thing they seem to care about is that they have a mommy who loves them.
It's the same for you, friends. Let go of the guilt, stop worrying about what you "should" be doing with your kids.
Smile at them. Tell them about Jesus, and point their hearts to the only One who can completely fulfill us. Listen to them.
Give yourself some grace, and remember that most of the guilt you're feeling is a lie straight from the enemy.
Because at the end of the day, even if I'm sure someone else could be doing a much better job, God has given me these children. And He's given you yours.
