sweet moments caught
mothering them well takes everything I have. all day. every day. and I fail every.single.day to do it perfectly. but I apologize, thank God for His grace and truth that spills over my life, and I do again and again.
this season of advent brings more stress than i'd like. and, a lot of it comes from the "traditions" that I think we have to do to make it special. i'm letting some things go, handing some of it to the kids if they really want to do it, and pushing through sometimes because i'm stubborn and then I regret it.
but at the end of each day, I have a renewed gratefulness and awe for this season. as it is more acutely obvious than ever that we NEEDED Jesus to come and save us!
