Mommy Guilt is real.
If you’re a mom, you may know this feeling quite well, especially around the time of night when your head finally hits the pillow.
That moment when your mind and body are supposed to be relaxing, but instead your thoughts start to settle on all the things you should or shouldn’t have done, and guilt begins to overwhelm you. Your eyes snap open, and suddenly you find yourself making a mental list of all the ways tomorrow will be different. All the ways YOU will be different.
And sometimes tomorrow really does end up being different, but sometimes…it’s just a repeat of exactly the same, sometimes even harder.
But in those moments, those days…okay, those weeks, I’ve really been blessed to have the Lord open my eyes to a little behind the scenes glimpse, and let me just tell you, it’s good. It can actually be really good.
If this sounds familiar, and you hear yourself saying, “me too…” I encourage you to head on over to The Better Mom, and read my post today on The Mommy Guilt Cure…
We’re in this together.
