Being a good mom is a gift. 💕
This was a big eye opener for me during a spiritual direction session a few weeks ago.
Lately, I have been viewing my ability to be a good mom as less than my ability to work and make money or my ability to play music, etc. Basically, all the other things I’m good at. 😆 I’ve viewed mothering my children as something that PREVENTS me from doing these other things more. Especially during this season of life. And it has left me feeling frustrated a lot lately.
Can my kids just be old enough to watch themselves already?!!!? 😂
But when I started to see that being a good mom is yet another gift that I have and something that I’m good at, it completely shifted my perspective. My ability to be a good mom is just as important as those other things I hold so highly in my head. I have become happier when I’m with my kids.
If you’ve been feeling some of the same things, I encourage you to do some reflecting on what it truly means to be a good mom. What amazing gifts do you have as a mom? Think about it for a while. Maybe you’ll find some peace in knowing that you are gifted in this whole mothering thing. 💞
