even though
i strive to and
i desire to 
be fully devoted and 
the very best wife and mom 
that i can be to my family,
i sometimes fail.


oh, you can’t relate?
well, sorry.
it’s the truth in my life.


sometimes i get so easily distracted,
focusing on all the wrong things
that i 
think 
my family needs and wants.
and then i get busy and
frazzled and frustrated
and then i am reminded that all they want is me.
not all that other stuff.
just me.
with a little twinkle in my eyes.
just for them.


and i am far too blessed to let this slip by.
to let these moments 
blow away with the wind.


oh, how i long to be a Proverbs 31 woman.


Her children arise and call her blessed; 
her husband also, and he praises her: 
“Many women do noble things, 
but you surpass them all.” 
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; 
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. 
Proverbs 31:28-30


i am blessed indeed.
