It’s no secret that motherhood is a mixed bag.
Most days you’re just trying to keep your head above the mountain of laundry that is calling your name, while simultaneously using said mountain to hide from the army of humans you personally created. There’s a lot of pressure as a mom to do things “right.” Or to BE something that the world has said you need to be.
But that’s just it. You’re a mom. You’re already everything your children NEED you to be because the Lord has gone before you. He’s trusted you with these babes because YOU are the mom for the job.
May these 21 Mom Quotes be a reminder of that truth for all the strong mamas today.
