One Day

May 13, 2018

One day they will realize monsters aren't real and noises aren't that scary, but for now, I'll let them think I'm the bravest person they know.

 

One day they will realize God gifted each of us differently and I don't actually draw the best sidewalk chalk animals in the world, but for now, I'll let them think I'm the greatest artist they know.

 

One day they will realize I don’t actually make Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets and Nutella sandwiches really aren’t gourmet, but for now, I’ll let them think I'm the best cook they know.

 

One day they will realize I can't make the boo-boos disappear and I can't heal the sickness, but for now, I'll let them think I'm the best doctor they know.

 

One day their math will be too advanced and their ability to use technology will far surpass mine, but for now, I'll let them think I'm the smartest person they know.

 

One day I won't have an answer to the "why" (or at least be able come up with some type of plausible explanation), but for now, I'll let them think I know it all. 

 

One day they will realize I'm not perfect and I don't have it all together, but for now, I'll let them think I've got it all figured out.

 

The reality is, if I let it, the weight of motherhood can bring me crashing down. Motherhood is scary. Motherhood is trying. Motherhood is humbling. Motherhood is tiring.

 

But, motherhood is sweet. Motherhood is beautiful. Motherhood is amazing. Motherhood is the greatest challenge I've ever faced.

 

One day they will realize I'm not perfect. But, today, I'll keep it going just a little longer. One day, they will understand. They will see that in the midst of growing, I'm pouring my heart and soul into every little thing they do. And, as a I fail, I am learning. Learning to be better. Learning to be stronger. Learning to be braver.

 

I'm not the best mom in the world, but I'm their mom. I'm the mom they know. God chose me because He knew I was the best mom for them. And that, my friends, is truth I will cling to both now and that "one day."
