For the last few months I have been frustrated by the seemingly endless blogs that portray motherhood as this perfection of duty. This seeming striving for perfection that is exhausting, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. A striving that forgets God's grace. I have started and restarted a post to somehow express the truth and honesty I feel is important for all women and aspiring wives and mothers to read about, but just haven't been able to organize my thoughts well enough.
I was thinking it would be a fitting mother's day weekend post to finally formulate my thoughts. However, I read Ann Voskamp's latest post here: http://www.aholyexperience.com/2013/05/why-mothers-day-is-for-the-birds/ and it basically said everything I wanted to say and more. If you are a mother...if you hope to be a mother someday...read this. And just rest in God's grace today and who He has made you to be.
