This morning’s post was written by Sarah Mae, from Like A Warm Cup of Coffee. Sarah Mae has found her greatest joy in being a household engineer (A.K.A homemaker) living in Pennsylvania amidst beautiful Amish country. She is the wife of Jesse, a super cool motorcycling husband, and the mama to three small babes. She is on a mission (more of a journey) to become an excellent wife, loving mama, disciplined home educator (because she is so type-b), and grace-filled woman.
It’s been a rough few weeks months.
There are days when I don’t feel like myself anymore. I feel like my hormones are controlling me – always tired, angry or sad. Pretty much always, yea.
I hate it.
Then I feel depressed and lonely and my thoughts go crazy and I forget my true identity.
I look around and every other mom seems to have it so together – days filled with crafts and cookies and smiles and energy. My dreams and desires are filled with those things, my reality is not.
When I bake cookies, I feel impatient with my babes.
When I plan a craft, I’m just to tired to follow through with it.
Here’s the thing, I know the truth. I know that not every one has it all together and pictures often tell a different story. But it’s hard not to compare. It’s hard to remember who I am. It’s hard to persevere and fight the good fight.
I want to do the hard things, but sometimes I can barely do the easy things.
Join me each Thursday as I share a devotional that has encouraged me in my walk as a wife and mother.
