My Kids Have a Mama Who Cries

My kids have a mama who cries.

My kids have a mama who burns the toast and runs behind and gets upset.

But they also have a mama who prays for them and checks on them and tucks them in at night.

They have a mama who cuts their grapes and fills their cups and doesn’t mind letting them go first.

They have a mama who needs her breaks and time away but always misses them while I’m out.

They have a mama who’ll never stop believing in them and cheering for them and loving them with all I’ve got.

Yes, I get tired.

And frustrated.

And I know I’m so very far from perfect.

But I hope my kids always know I’ve loved them with my whole heart.

And they’re always – always – worth it.

I’m just so very grateful.

I’m so grateful to get to be their mama.
