For the Moments I Feel Faint...

I loved this moment sitting in the back yard with my boys on Monday afternoon. The sun was shining and they were playing so well together... I could stop at that but I wouldn't be telling you the whole story.

That's where social media is tricky. "Oh look my boys are playing so well together... I've got them under control..." ha, not.

Monday was one of the worst mothering days that I have had. The thing that puzzles me is that there really wasn't any ONE thing that made it awful that I can think of. I snapped at the boys, yelled... cried... it wasn't pretty. I was am tired, I'm working out like crazy, started a new "job" (that I love), and dealing with some life changes... plus mothering little people isn't easy even on the best of days.

I ended up in Hudson's room apologizing and explaining that Mommys make bad choices too and I have to ask for forgiveness just like he does. And then we went to the back yard to play where I took this picture.

As I sat and watched the boys play, I prayed that God would help them forget those moments where I was short and snapped, but that they would remember the sweet time of us playing in the yard. I prayed for GRACE. The days are so long, but the years are short (or so I am told). I love being a mom, but it's so hard... so if you have days like this, you're not alone. There's usually a story behind the picture. :)
Happy Wednesday loves.
