Yes, it's time of week again.
When I think of encouragement, I think of moms. Every. Mom. Everywhere.
I think of moms who have no idea how great a job they are doing with their kids- their family. I think of moms who think they have it all together- but don't. I think of moms who look at other moms and want their lives. I think of moms who look at other moms and don't want their lives.
We all need encouragement. It becomes water for life.
There's something powerful about having someone come up beside you and say to you, "You're a great mom."
It's simple, but oh so important. So needed. Needed on days when things are going great. When the laundry is done and the house is clean.
And needed on days when the washer has been run 3 times because you keep forgetting to put the clothes into the dryer. When the dishes are piled up and there's an inch of dust everywhere.
To hear/ see the words of other s that it's all okay. That you aren't
permanently screwing up your kids. They'll make it and be okay. You'll
make it and be okay.
That you, Mom, you will make it through this day. And the next and the next.
Sometimes, just a word of encouragement into the life of another makes all the difference in the world.
