Sometimes we need to remember that we are enough. We fail all the time. We have days that feel hopeless. We have days that are hard. We are always trying to be perfect as our Heavenly Father is perfect, but we are human, and we have to recall that.
Some mommies are home all day. It can be so very lonely. It can be an interior and silent suffering. Stay strong. Be vigilant. Continue to pray. Ask God to give you the grace to be joyful. We need joy. We can not do this job without joy. If we could only just remember that He loves us and we are enough. His deep and abiding and merciful love is enough for us.
Praying for all of you moms out there who are up all night nursing, pulling yourselves out of bed to push forward in the morning with a smile, and then on to your vocation of motherhood throughout the day... praying for the grace to find the joy in each small act of obedience to God and the strength to continue to love bigger in the things God is asking of us.
