10 Things I Ask Myself

Dear Busy Mom,

Some of you have heard me talk about all my … well, my mothering mistakes.  Pretty much, I’ve made a bunch of them. I’ve yelled, been impatient, rude and even unkind at times. I’ve looked at myself in the mirror and marveled that God has entrusted me (me!) with the wondrous responsibility of shepherding small hearts.

Maybe you can relate.

I wrote this list in my journal some years ago to help me “plant with the harvest in mind.”  You see, motherhood drives me to my knees–all the time.

It’s been said that there are “no perfect mothers … but a million ways to be a good mom.”

Keep trying, busy mom.  You don’t have to be perfect.  There are no perfect moms, but there sure are a lot of great ones.

Here’s my list–I hope it encourages you.

Keep growing,

    Good question for every mother. May I make a recommendation to enlarge on #9:

    #9. Can my children see how much I value marriage to their father?

  3. rebecca says:

    # 1 is the most important, without that single action, the rest just don’t happen.
