Be Present … Don’t Wish Today Away!

I used to think I had this mothering thing figured out.  Now, most days I vacillate between trusting grace for the mistakes I’ve made and fighting fear for the mistakes I will make next.

It’s easy for me to get caught up in regret over what has already happened or to fill my head and heart with worry over what will happen next.  Maybe you can relate?

Every season of parenting has brought its own hilarity and conundrums.  Some phases have been easier than others.  But each has ended and brought me to a new understanding of love and sacrifice and being present. And I know, all too soon, this season of parenting a teenager will end.  We’ll be looking at colleges and then talking about what job to take and maybe even {a long time from now!!} planning a wedding.

But I don’t want to miss the joys of this season. And I bet you don’t either!

Join me today at Hope for the Weary Mom and let’s agree not to wish today away …
