Ramblins on bein the mama

I was just thinking today how good I really have it. I love spending time with my kids. I love it when Kaitlyn is off school, and we all have the whole day together. It's so nice laying on the couch with Ethan, and taking a nap together. Of course, I always think I could be doing a better job. I could be more patient, I could be different. But I'm trying to get rid of that kind of thinking. I am exactly the kind of mom God made me to be. He's in charge, and He knows what He's doing. My kids know that I love them, and that I like to be with them, and I do my best to teach them about God, so I feel like I'm probably doing okay. I'm really looking forward to doing the Mary and Martha Bible study, cause I feel like that can help me even more.

I've also decided that I'm going to do a better job of keeping the house clean. Troy works hard all day at work, so that our family will have everything we need. We have our beautiful house, and it's up to me to keep it beautiful, and a haven for our family.


  1. You are a GREAT mom Bren! Way better than I think I am!

    As far as the housecleaning goes...I am sure we could all do a better job (especially me!), but I would rather spend my time with my kiddos than cleaning. When I pass, my kids won't remember how clean the house was...they will remember the memories we created together.

  2. THis is a great post and one I can relate to very much.
    Thankyou for sharing from the heart.
