Mommy guilt

Dear fellow Mommies,

Have you ever had the feeling that you messed up?
Haven't been a good enough Mom lately?
That you haven't done enough? 
That you should be doing this or that?
That you miss the past times with your kids?

Mommy guilt is real and one of the most difficult feelings for a Mom to encounter. And maybe it can be a good thing to help us recognize the need to spend more one on one time with our children.

I'm here to tell you that you are enough :)! God made you for a deep purpose in raising your children and being blessed to be called "Mom." By calling upon Him, we can help eliminate the feelings of guilt.

I know I've felt those feelings listed above before and it is a heart wrenching feeling. God created each of us so very special. We may not do 'this' or 'that' but we can do 'something else' really good :).

Mommy friends, lets try to stop comparing ourselves to other Moms. Because I'm sure you've heard it before but "Comparison is THE thief of joy." And it is so true. Every single Mom brings a beautiful characteristic to the table in their own homes. Our kids need us to be happy in our own shoes. And I believe that helps them feel loved.

Another thing is that kids offer so many new beginnings. What a blessing that is! Maybe we messed up yesterday by being too tired, too busy, too impatient or whatever it may be. But here is the most beautiful part::::Tomorrow is a brand new day! Actually any time is a brand new time to start fresh! Lets make the most of it. I know I will!

I want to start spending more individual time with each child on a regular basis. I've gone on some "Mommy & son dates." And they sure are fun!! That is definitely one of my goals to keep up with each child and my hubby! :)

Love your fellow Mommy friend, Jamie
