  1. So true. Our calling as mothers can be overwhelming at times. I just wrote a similar post, how funny! My way seems ‘blurry, bumpy and broken’ too, at times. You’re not alone!! Thanks for sharing your heart.

  2. Girrrl, you rock! You write beautifully. When I saw that you had emailed this morning, my first thought was, “My, she’s up and at it early.” 🙂 And boy, were you!

    I love the reminder of the wonder of tracking. I told someone recently that one of my biggest motivators over the last two decades has been the little faces that kept looking up at me with such dependence. I would tell the Lord I wasn’t good/nice/strong enough for this mom- job. Then each day I’d wake up and say, “Well, Lord, You didn’t fire me so let’s get on with this ‘change-thing'”. I’m grateful beyond words that He just kept showing up every morning shortly before oatmeal and Similac and gave me some of Himself to share with my needy, darling little brood.

    Happy, Happy Mother’s Day!

  3. Kathy…you make me smile! You would never be fired, I’m sure of that! What an excellent job you did…the proof is in the pudding…your sweet Anna is a dear! Thanks for stopping by today. Missing my Tuesday mornings with you and the other ladies!!

  4. Such a beautiful way with words!! ~ I love this!! ~ so inspiring. I have four monkeys 🙂 as well and so have a heart for children – love it when they can speak of His famous Name. Don’t you know He feels that way for each one of us… loving it when we adults call upon His famous Name? Keep writing – I’m in for reading your thoughts all the time!!
    p.s. I miss our Tuesdays as well – I heard Beth Moore has a new study on James coming out in the fall – YIPPEE!!!

  5. Morgan, absolutely beautiful! You have a gift for writing, so keep doing it. I miss seeing your smiling face on Tuesdays.
    Boys are awesome, aren’t they? My 2 just melt my heart everyday as they are such blessings. Sometimes I don’t know what God was thinking when He entrusted them to me as I completely relate about being self-centered. But He continues to change me from the inside out and is equipping me for this journey!
