First, motherhood is hard, it just is. Whoever says otherwise, most likely has a full time nanny, chef and maid. In my home, I play all those roles plus therapist, CEO, treasurer and butt wiper. It truly is exhausting. Now if you are a mom yourself in the throws of all this, you know that we honestly wouldn't change a damn thing. Really. I think we forget that as moms that it's okay to be overwhelmed, to vent, to cry. Just because a good thing can have some bad moments, doesn't make it a bad thing. Good stress is still stress and it has the same effects on your body.... It is all temporary. Yes. This is such good news. Not motherhood being temporary, that's forever girlfriend, Praise Jesus, but this season, this moment. The tough battles of 3 year old's will pass. Four is pretty amazing, let me tell ya. The lack of sleep, will get better....so I've heard, haven't quite experienced this one yet. You and your husband will find alone time again and not just when Nana is in town, your kids will be able to watch themselves one day!!! Most importantly, whatever life has thrown your way that is stressing you out, worrying you or making you feel uneasy, shall too pass.
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:" Acts 2:17-38 KJV
I write this 4 years after this photo was taken. I have survived the terrible two’s and the life of a three-nager. This little girl is now 5 1/2 with the heart of Mother Theresa and spirit of a fairy princess.
I can say with certainty that no matter where you are on the spectrum of motherhood, this too shall pass. Embrace the lovely moments and brace yourself for the tough ones. Motherhood is here, waiting for you to experience all the beauty it has to offer. 💕
