Moms, I know you’re busy and crazy-tired, but please make time to read this.
Then go and be a wife to your husband and a mother to your children. Feel good about your industriousness in your home. Love God and your family first, and know you’re being a good steward of your time. You are doing enough. (Note to self: So are you, Katie! )
Let us all learn to say, “I’m sorry, but I can’t do that,” and to be content in being “just” a mom.
I’d like to write more, but you guessed it: “I’m sorry; I can’t do that.” Not now when a child is cuddled close to me and deserves her mom’s full attention. A child whom I should always see, not as a disruption, but as a reminder that I have been called to dedicate my life and my love to God and the family He has given me.
