Ever?

Do you ever feel like you're just not good enough? Like you won't ever make someone proud? You hear people tell you they're proud from time to time but do you ever get the feeling deep down like there is something you could do better that would please them more. Why do other people's opinions mean so much? I can't even put into words how many times I've felt this way - nothing I do will ever be enough. There will always be something they will see that is wrong with me.

I'm having one of those days today. I have the four best accomplishments in the world - they may be wild, loud and crazy from time to time but deep down they are good kids and I know it and I'm proud of them. I want them to always know that I am proud of them - I will never EVER let a day go by without them knowing just how proud I am and they will always know that not only are they enough but they are more than enough. I never ever want my children to doubt themselves - I never want them to sit by themselves and wonder what else they could do to be good enough - EVER!

I've had days exactly like this too! Hang in there! You're an awesome momma and I know your kiddos love you! It's easy to get down on ourselves, esp when we step back and look at our jobs as moms and feel like we aren't accomplished by the world's standards. We are doing the most important thing we can be doing right now so we just have to remind ourselves of that!

Thanks so much for always being there to remind me of these kinds of things...oh...and for keeping me on your list after the recent cuts, lol!

Oh, do I ever...but I'm learning lately that I am exactly where God wants me to be right now. And, I can never measure up to who He wants me to be on my own...I need Him to lead me and change me into the woman He wants me to be. I can come to His thrown no matter where I am and He will love me no matter what. And, He can make something beautiful out of this mess. That's what I want my little ones to know - that their worth is not found in this world, but in God alone.
