Mighty, Magic Mommy

by

My daughter gave me a coffee mug not too long ago that I absolutely love.

Not only because it’s big and holds a lot of coffee,

but also because it was painted with a C where there should be a G…

It’s flawed, but I don’t care.

I love it anyway.

It reminds me of what motherhood is like sometimes…

I’m not mighty.

Or magic. (Even though when I’m staring down at a mountain-high pile of laundry that needs to be folded, I wish I was.)

And I’m not perfect, either.

But, that’s okay.

Because, on the other side of the mug, it says, “You’re my hero”…

and that’s one of the best things about being a mom. :)

What about you? What do you love most about being a mom? What flaws or imperfections have you struggled with along the way? Has there been a time you’ve felt like a hero to your kids?
