A Great Mom?????
I will share one of the sweet lines this sweet lady wrote, “You are such a great mom, Jamie, I hope you know that in your heart of hearts.”
I’ve been chewing and chewing on this………..
Does any mom really know if they are great? In their heart of hearts?
Do I have some strange inferiority complex????
I mean I don’t think I’m a horrible mom. I think I pass, but great???
Honestly I have never, ever been entrusted with a task I feel less equipped for in my entire life. I am a moment by moment, pray a whole pile, press on and trust that at the very least I will scrape by with a pass………….
Thinking of my post yesterday – talking about work and home – that is the one refreshing thing about work outside the home. I know when I do well at “work”. A good or even great job is easy to decipher. At home? That’s another story. I have no idea, honestly, none…………..
Please, please, please don’t comment with compliments on my parenting – this is not the goal of this post.
My goal is to inquire, am I alone? Do you all know in your heart of hearts that you’re a great mom???
