this article has changed my life.


it is a must read for any mom.
for all moms.


my favorite part was when it said this:

But a Christian should have a different paradigm.

We should run to to the cross. To death.

So lay down your hopes.

Lay down your future.

Lay down your petty annoyances.

Lay down your desire to be recognized.

Lay down your fussiness at your children.

Lay down your perfectly clean house.

Lay down your grievances about the life you are living.

Lay down the imaginary life you could have had by yourself.

Let it go.


this is so what i need to hear.
and now i’ve heard it.
and i am blessed.
may you be blessed, too.


it is so easy for me to get wrapped up

in the things i would like to have
put together or
rather than looking into
each of my children’s eyes
and really hearing them.
really understanding
what they need from me
in that exact moment.

and then happily giving whatever that is to them.
