Overwhelmed Mama Who Needs to Vent

Overwhelmed Mama Who Needs to Vent

I am not always on the ball as a mother. In fact, probably more often than not, I am playing catch up, reactive instead of proactive, and I have usually lost control some time in the morning. I envisioned something different when I became a mom. I thought I would be this perfect mom, always doing everything right: eating organic food, going for daily walks outside, lots of mom to mom time, etc. Life just didn’t have that in store for us. The pandemic didn’t help at all either. It was almost as if the perfect parenthood was never meant to be for us.

And I guess I just need to be okay with that. Sure, we may not be the best parents all of the time. But we are good parents, trying our best to raise Elizabeth the best possible way we can manage. Shouldn’t that be enough?

I think when I am out of control, God is in control. So I just need to remember that. It glorifies God when we know we are out of control.

Here is a Christian song I wrote. Feel free to have a listen.
