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!)
