Each morning, before I get out of bed, my prayer is for God to use me that day. To be the mother you all need. Hours quickly pass and no matter what my intent, there are days that I fail.
Days where my patience is short. My voice is harsh. And grace is lost. There are days I get so caught up in the to do lists, my feelings of inadequacy, or the worries of my heart, that I forget to simply see what truly matters.
I am learning to stop and to just see the simple beauty of each day. To stop and just feel this love. As I slow down and soak in this beauty, I realize through all of my failures and inadequacies, God is growing me and showing me who I am in Him.
