While I love my kids with all of my heart and I know that God gave me each one of these blessings to raise to be good people. It’s not easy, but I am up for the task that He has assigned me. One of the most precious gifts that God has given me during my time as a mother, is awesome mommy friends. These are girls that I can cry with (my kid will not sleep!), ask questions without judgment (how do you get human poop out of carpet?) and just live life REAL.
Do you have mommy friends that help get you through motherhood? Say this prayer with me and let’s thank God for each of them:
Dear God, Thank you so much for surrounding me with moms who are real. These are friends that understand where I am and while they cannot fix the situation, they stand by me without judgment and help me make it through this special time in my life. Thank you, God. Amen.
If you have a special friend, make sure to drop them a note or text this Mother’s day and let them know how much their friendship means to you. In search of mommy friends? Some of my best most authentic friends have come from our church’s moms group. Find a local group in your area, be open and honest and find moms who have children that are similar ages to yours (though, this is not a requirement!).
