  1. Needed to hear this today — I’ve had three kids in 4 yrs and man is it so tough, especially with my oldest being very strong willed. I have to start every day with a new perspective and remind myself that my reward is not here. I’m still learning to do this — every day is a challenge and a day I can hopefully learn and grow and be the mom that God wants me to be.

    1. Melissa, His mercies are new every morning. 🙂 We get a fresh do-over every single morning. praise Him!! My oldest is also very strong willed…I feel your pain. Hang in there. Thanks for stopping by and chiming in!

  2. There were 2 things that really hit home with me while reading this tonight. The first is we can always have peace under any circumstance, whether we are found to have sadness or happiness in our heart. The other was the fact that we are not ‘home’ yet. The reason that these 2 points jumped out at me is because I am a mom of 3 children, but am also experiencing great grief over the loss of my husband. My children, between the ages of 8 and 12, and I miss him more than words can ever express. I know there are very few moms who can relate to me because most have their husbands to help in parenting. And yes, it is frustrating to me when I hear moms complain about ‘minor’ things….I was married at one time, and I too complained about those minor things. I have a whole new perspective that most can not understand. My children and I cannot wait to finally be ‘home’.

  3. I love this post! Some days I have to consciously stop myself and remember that this is the good stuff. Right now, the things that frustrate me on a daily basis with my children are the things I will look back on in 20 years and wish that I had cherished. I am not home yet but while my home is here on Earth I have to remember that this IS happiness and when my earthly home is quiet one day I will long for a tantrum or to get someone another glass of milk or to break up a fight over a video game remote.

  4. Thank you for this post.I too am a Mom of a strong willed 3 year old. I work full time and often find it hard to juggle Motherhood, day to day activities, keeping a clean house,and provide a healthy meal. I pray for patience on a daily basis.
