A Hug for You, Tired Mama

I hadn't planned on posting today, but then I saw this post at We Are THAT Family, and I just had to. Because I know I'm not the only one who feels like I'm not always up for this motherhood thing--that every other mother has "got it", but somehow I missed it. Whatever it is. 

And I know I'm not the only one who is surprised by motherhood. Not the hard stuff, but the good stuff. Those times when you see your child being a servant to his sibling, or reading her bible because she wants to, or understanding a math concept that you thought would keep her from graduating until she's forty-five. 

Those are the moments when you realize that God, through your weakness, is doing great things. That He, through you, is working out the miraculous in the mundane. 

Mama? What you're doing? All those tasks that seem pointless or oh, so ordinary? They're ginormous, when you think about it. 

So to all my fellow, tired mamas, here's a hug and a great big, "Atta girl!" 

Oh, and when you read the blog post I shared? Be sure to watch the video, too. It's pretty awesome. (And I really want to read that book!)


  1. Sharing this! I have a surprising number of young mothers on my friend list! YOU are special! :-)

    1. Thank you for sharing and for helping to spread the word about my little blog! You're pretty special, too.

  2. Jessica, I enjoy keeping up with you and your family through your blog. You are a good Mommie! We all do the job unexperienced, but God planned it that way it seems. This may show up under the churches name, but this is Sis. Going

    1. Aw, thank you! I didn't even know you read my blog! You made my day. We sure do miss you!


Thank you for taking the time to comment!
