This Bible verse has been a favorite for a long time:
I've always applied to to other things in the Christian life such as serving others, serving within church, doing what's right when no one else is, following God's standards.
Then came a light bulb moment.
This can apply to motherhood too.
One friend of mine has a son with limited immunity.
One friend's daughter was born with Trisomy 18.
One friend's son has ADHD.
One friend's daughter has SPD.
One friend has a child with learning disabilities.
One friend has quadruplets.
One friend has twins.
One friend's son has autism.
Several friends are single moms.
Several friends struggle with depression, anxiety, or other chronic illnesses.
Several friends are military moms with all the extra work and worry that comes with it.
Some seasons of motherhood are excruciatingly exhausting. Hang in there Moms.
P.S. Jen Hatmaker had an excellent post about Sweet vs Spicy families. I highly recommend you read it!
