Happy Mother’s Day! Being a mom is one of the hardest jobs. Being a mom is also one of the most rewarding jobs. Proverbs 31:28-29 says, “Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also praises her: ‘Many women have done noble deeds, but you surpass them all!’” Wouldn’t it be nice if our little ones truly called us blessed instead of just calling our name 100 times a day? How good would it feel if our husbands sang our praises every day instead of asking what’s for dinner? While those things may not happen daily, by being a faith builder in your home, you truly do surpass them all.
To celebrate Mother’s Day, here are ten things to remember about motherhood:
- The days are long, but the years are short. Cherish the good days and the bad days. They are all a gift from God.
- Little ears are listening. Little minds are like sponges. It is never too early to help them hide God’s word in their heart.
- You are doing a good job, even when it doesn’t seem like it. There is a reason they walk by Dad’s side of the bed in the middle of the night to get to you.
- Being there for your children is important. Being there for your spouse is important. Don’t let your marriage get lost in parenthood.
- Your children look super cute in matching clothes. Your children look just as cute in Christmas leggings and a purple shirt. Choose your battles.
- They will sleep through the night eventually, I promise!
- God has given you the best parenting manual. Start your day in His word to guide your steps.
- Parents have to say no so many times. Be sure to find times to say yes.
- You are a super parent, but you can’t do it alone. Get yourself a village to do life with.
- Let CrossRidge Church be a part of your village. I am so thankful for the people God has placed in my life!
