“In a very real sense not one of us is qualified, but it seems that God continually chooses the most unqualified to do his work, to bear his glory. If we are qualified, we tend to think that we have done the job ourselves. If we are forced to accept our evident lack of qualification, then there's no danger that we will confuse God's work with our own, or God's glory with our own.”
Motherhood is something I cherish. For obvious reasons and some not so obvious. There was a season where I thought being a mother wasn't something I was going to get to do. It was short in the wake of other's infertility stories, but to us, it felt like an eternity. So when I write here about this big mixed bag of mothering emotions and feelings, overwhelming moments and heart-melting seasons, the highs and lows, the ups and downs, I do so with you in mind.
You, the Mom who never thought she'd be one. You the Mom who didn't necessarily choose to do it alone. You, the Mom who feels like her kids are a burden but could never say it out loud. You, the Mom who has no idea what she's doing but feels like she needs to fake it.
These stories are for you so that maybe, just maybe, one of you will read my beautiful mess and sigh with some relief, "Me too."
This salsa feeds kids breakfast. No, not salsa for breakfast, but your purchase will provide food for The Breakfast Club Kids in Ethiopia, who are only recently getting a meal before school. So thank you :)
