Mom forgot her makeup today🤪, 33.33% of the children didn’t get a bath before church🐷, Matt’s well-loved 13-year-old suit is covered in baby slobber and I keep forgetting to get it dry cleaned or just get him a new one😏, and mom also neglected to get more of the “good snacks” for church this week. 😳
At certain points in my life this list of things would have sent me into full on anxiety and I would have stayed home from church. But guess what? Not today. Instead, I chose happy. I chose grateful. I chose peace. And I’m so glad I did.
Letting go of perfection and embracing my perfectly imperfect life has given me so much peace. Knowing God loves me and accepts me as I am. Knowing my fellow sisters see me as a daughter of God and are all fighting their own individual battles. Knowing I’m not alone.
My battles were small to day, but I’m grateful for the people around me who made them easier to bear. The sisters who smiled, were willing to talk, shared snacks and toys, , gave hugs, and had kind things to say. 💓
Aren’t we all perfectly imperfect? Striving to become the best we can possibly be? May we judge a little less, and connect a little more. Give a smile, start a conversation...and go to church even when our children are only 33.3% bathed and we are makeup-less. I mean it Sister, we’re all on this journey together.
