“Mommy, can we go to the store and buy food for people who don’t have a home?” I was taken aback by my daughter’s request as we pulled out of her preschool parking lot. “Of course. Let’s do it now,” I said.
Today I’m on the Nashville Moms Blog where I write about my perspective on when you don’t want to be where you are…
As women we take on many roles in a single day. Today I am a mother, wife, daughter, friend, lover, chef, house cleaner, leader, encourager, giver, driver, listener, and the list goes on and on. But of all the things I am, the most important role is this: I am loved. When I am tired, pulled in every direction and feel like I have nothing left, I remind myself that there is a God who loves me (He is Love itself) and everything else falls under this umbrella of truth. Rest in this today, dear one. You are loved.
When I think about all that I’ve read about what it means to be a mother, I am overwhelmed with advice, warnings, other’s experiences, statistics, research. But what if we’re listening to the wrong voices?
