Forgive Me When I Whine

Yesterday's post is clearly a sign I've been whining too much about my life.

When really, I have nothing to complain about.

I love the gentle reminder this has brought to me.

I am blessed.

We are all blessed.

Sometimes we just don't see it.

I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. I had actually just watched the video right before I came to your blog. What an incredible reminder! One I have desperately needed.

Wendy, Wendy, Wendy. Every year I struggle with Mother's Day. There are definitely forces working against me to make me feel like less of a Mother and sometimes I let them.
I know I should always be grateful for how I've been blessed, and I am, but often I allow discouraging thoughts to creep in and I end up under valuing myself as a wife, mother, and person.
Stephanie is an amazing example of someone who has been given an awesome trial and struggles with many of the same things I do, but still manages to come back to what is really important.
Thanks for the beautiful reminder, especially this week, that our individual worth as Daughters of God is what makes our role as Mothers even more valuable.
I'm really going to try remembering this piece when I'm boo-hooing about how nobody cares how hard I work for them, and remind myself how much I really love what I have chosen to invest my time in.
