Ahh, motherhood. There’s nothing quite like it. Being a mom is by far one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life. But, it’s also the most fulfilling part of my life. I still feel ”restless” and I’ll always be seeking and yearning for something more (Jesus) but I think being a wife and a mother has brought me a big part of that missing puzzle piece.
That said, there are many blogs out there that seem to be written by perfect people about their perfect family and perfect homes and perfect everything. For the most part I like to focus on the positive and the idealistic side of life when talking to people in the real world because no one likes listening to a whiner all the time. But I also feel it is important to take a reality check sometimes and let people know that we are normal, no matter what great face we show on the outside.
After I vent or write down my frustrations, I feel better and realize they’re not so bad. It helps to talk about the trials of motherhood/marriage and just life in general with others not because I enjoy knowing others are suffering too but because it reminds me that I am not alone and crazy. (or at least not alone)
Thus Whiney Wednesday was born. Here are my Rules for Whiney Wednesdays: Only share up to 3 whines (even though there could be many more!) and offer these pebbles in the day as a prayer for my husband and all mothers and fathers and their families. (If God can transform wine into His precious blood, He can find a good use for our whines)
