A mothers tears

I sat with a friend tonight.
A fellow mom.
The tears gushed, spilled, flooded, and there was no stopping them.
Words like:
Need more time
flowed from her mouth.
I have been there. Can I assume you have been there too?
There was NOTHING I could do to stop it. The negatives were untrue!  But in that moment, all I could do was be an ear to hear.
It is in those times of feeling worthless that I need this:
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:8-9
If today is a rough mommy day, PLEASE trust that God is with you and has prepared the way!
