Mother's Day Post

Hey Sis! 


Happy Mother's Day! I would have never painted my life to be where it is today but I am here and I am grateful. Being a single mother was something I didn’t sign up for. I saw my life with a husband + child living as a family.  But my life was shifted in a positive way and I am in one of the most liberating moments I've ever been in my life. 

It is not an easy road but by the grace of God, I am doing what I need to and making it. Want to know how I've gotten by? See 3 tips that help motherhood go smoothly for me.

3 Motherhood Tips

1. Ask God for help every time. 

Throughout this journey, it has been a hard but a great process for me as a single mother asking God for guidance on areas where I’m unclear. Like when my baby cries, I don’t understand something, or when big decisions need to be made. It works every time because once you "trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5). You allow God to come in and make things right.

2. Patience 

You have to have the patience for the little ones. One thing my therapist told me is that I have to understand perspective. See for me, I see things from a motherly protective perspective and my son sees things from a explore curious perspective. It blows my mind to understand that concept because I would literally police everything my son would do out of worry that he will hurt himself. Once I let that go and started worrying less, God came in and show me ways to really embark patience.

3. Take deep breaths

This is important on so many levels that I can have a whole post about this. Taking deep breaths can bring you back to a state of peace, calmness, and understanding. When things aren't going how you want, you to take a deep breath, go back to 2. patience, and then 1. ask God for help. Because when you "Seek first the kingdom of God. All these other things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33).

I just want to say I love you guys, keep pushing, keep striving. From me to you, here is a virtual hug from one mother to another, and a flower from me to you. Happy Mother's Day.




I hope you're encouraged.
