as a mom….theres a huge responsibility. You have to be that example of what a christian should be. I see some people online putting on these posts: “oh i am so blessed to have these kids” “being a parent is the best thing ever” and so on.
While I agree 10000000% – I am also gonna be honest.
Parenting sucks sometimes.
Its the most difficult thing you will go through.
Being a parent never stops – you will always be a parent.
It will literally be the best choice you will ever make in your life – but it will tear you to pieces sometimes.
I love my kids so much – but this parenting thing is hard? Being that example of what a good Christian should be is …….. no words. Its so unbelievably hard. When you dont want to? They push you to be better. While thats freaking awesome and thats what should happen?
My point? Why cant we choose to be real? Why do we have to put on a front? Why do we shame other parents who think differently than us? Why cant we show the fact that we arent perfect?
Only God is perfect – we are gonna make mistakes … we are gonna do the wrong thing … we are just not gonna be able to function sometimes … why cant that be the normal?
Why cant we be real about how hard being a christian is?
