It’s a tough job, this mom thing…But dang it, it can be done!

This morning it was bitter sweet goodbyes to lessons in parenting. For the last several months our Sunday morning adult Bible class has been going through a parenting “class” (if you will). We have awesome class facilitators who did a fabulous job of sharing the trials, truths and successes of their parenting adventures. I have taken so much away from the last couple of months, and though I am sad to be done with that topic, I know that my growth as mommy will continue. My journey through motherhood began in nothing short of sinking sand that nearly consumed me entirely. I have been a neglectful mom, a single mom and a mom who just didn’t want the job. I loved my kids, but I wanted more, something different, to be successful, to have more fun. I was drowning in the what seemed an impossible life as mom. Five years ago, although I had hoped for it, I never actually thought that being mommy could be so fulfilling. Today I stand on solid ground and my job has new meaning; a revised description. My brother told me just the other day that I have really done a 180, I hope that one day he can see that it is Jesus. I am not a perfect mom, and never will be (I still take parenting classes too), and I mess up, and I get angry (too angry), but, I have learned that this is not a defeating job. It can be done, it can be done well, and it dang it, it can be fun! I hope to reach out to other parents and share with them the hope and joy and meaning I now have as a mom. There will be struggles, but there are also solutions and there is hope. I want to reach out to parents who need help, who need a break, who need answers or who just want to share and laugh with someone else who can relate. I want to help parents celebrate their kids (cause there’s lots to be celebrated) and I want to help connect them to resources when they need help. Guess that’s why I started the business. (That and I needed an outlet for all my crafty hobbies, cause hubby says they’re kinda expensive to be doin just for the fun of it.)
