I have been searching for articles to share every other weekend from bloggers that I follow and enjoy. This week I found an encouraging article by my friend, Autumn, at Welcome to My World. Her article is entitled, You’re a Good Mom.
As a mother of a toddler I can totally relate to Autumn on many levels. In this post she discusses a mother’s desire to be good, but all of the insecurities that keep us from feeling that way. For me, I struggle with a full-time job and all that it entails, friendships, housekeeping, and spending quality time with my family everyday. This article helped me to see that it’s okay to put family first. So what if my house is a mess 80% of the time? I’ve got a healthy, growing girl and that’s my first priority. It is nice to hear from others that you are doing a good job, but for me validation comes from knowing that I’ve done my best each day to be the mom that my little Arianna needs me to be.
