Don’t get me wrong, I love having regular breaks from my kids, it makes me a way better mom. I also love working, most of my time being a mom I’ve always worked and I actually do like it.
However, weeks like last week where I’m gone or super busy almost the whole week leave me wanting to do nothing but be with my little humans.
Even through I love what I do….I love these kids more, and everything I do is with them in mind.
I am increasingly aware that even if I do great things helping people get free, and even if I do my part to bring love into the world…what good is it if I fail to love the people right in front of me well?
So wether its a busy work week of loving them by providing for them, or loving them by stopping to read a book, or play with them, my goal is that they would know my heart has been love towards them the entire time.
I’ve let go of perfection, there are times where I fail miserably, I’m already surrendered to the fact that one day we will have hard conversations about how I messed up and caused them pain, but I pray that all of the pain I have caused them will rest on a bed of love that I have for them.
