“And even in the madness there is peace drowning out the voices that surround me in all of the chaos your create a symphony...”
~ 🎼 song by @Switch🎼
This morning was chaotic.
This morning episode into motherhood was hard.
I legit came home from dropping the precious #adorables off at camp and cried.
One challenges every fiber of my being and broke me today.
I was challenged and had to stand strong, correct the behavior in my fiercest mommy voice and then crumbled.
Being a Mom means loving but also being strong enough to correct the behavior that requires it.
It is legit the hardest blessed job on the planet.
I feel like a failure at times as I do not know where the hard headed strong willed I am gonna do what I want when I want behavior comes from. (Well I have a clue but that’s another story 😬)
It makes me think I failed as a mom when I am faced with pure firecracker attitude.
(Not looking for encouragement )
But. It’s not failure. It’s a child who is seeking to know the boundaries. Who needs her Mom to guide her back into where she needs to go. The hands on her hips is challenging me to show her that yes you are strong but you must obey your parents. The trend these days seems to be to allow kids to figure life out in their own.
As hard as parenting is?! I was called to Be a PARENT. That means all the mess all the tough love, tears, prayer on my knees for guidance, and reading all the books I can to strengthen my #momtools to BE the PARENT my girls need me to be. .
As I drove home, through my tears this song came on and God reminded me that I am strong and I am made for the task of motherhood. And He will bless me with more opportunities love on my girls and enjoy them before one of them reminds me of her strong will, tenacity and unbending determination to make her way in the world....
Reminds me of somebody I know....😬🧐
