What Is an Ultimate Mom?
Every week, I like to inspire you with a thought about what an Ultimate Mom is. It’s a lot of fun to consider a new way that Moms are ultimate and on the path God has created for them. This week, I have been inspired by moms who are real. They are real in the way they share about being a Mom. They acknowledge that the circumstances around us make the days tough, but the blessings of being a Mom – and our children – outweigh any difficulties they face. From friends who have faced infertility and have adopted to friends who have had children with special needs and those who lost baby – those are Moms who are Ultimate Moms – because they don’t walka round with their head down. But they walk around encouraging and edifying others to find the beauty of each moment and breath we are given.
This week, I want to feature Katey. Last week, she wrote a post titles: Internet and the Tired Mom. This post caught my eye and I must admit, it’s one of my very favorite posts. In it, Katey shares that when her children were little – she didn’t have the internet to spend her time on. She had friends – in real life and didn’t walk around feeling discouraged. I love her honesty and integrity. Her post inspired my post The Hardest Thing about Being a Mom. I love how Katey encourages Moms to step up and out – and to look up at Jesus for their daily needs. She is an encouraging Mom and I would love for you to visit her facebook page and blog. I know you will love her open and witty posts.
Ultimate Mom Moment
This week – I will admit that my ultimate Mom moment came in a moment of total surrender. I have been sick – really sick for about a week. I try not to share too much about that here…but, sometimes I do have to share my own weakness to give you authentic encouragement. Most of the time, when I am sick I just push through. This week, I could not. I had to give in and just stay in bed for two days. And you know what that did, it gave my children a chance to step up! I’m still recovering and ready to be 100%, but am thankful to know that my children are catching on, they are growing and it’s so important that we give them opportunities to see that Mom is a person – we needt o be taken care of at times… It’s hard with littles, but if you teach them and train them well, when they are entering those preteen and teen years – they will step up, I promise!
