Mighty, Magic Mommy


My daughter gave me a coffee mug a while ago that I absolutely love.

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

but because it has a mistake on it.

It’s painted with a C where there should be a G…

It’s flawed, but it’s one of my favorite mugs.

Because it’s a perfect reminder of what being a mom is like sometimes…

I don’t always feel mighty,

and I’m not magic. (Even though when I’m staring down a mountain-high pile of laundry, I wish I was.)

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?

Note: We had family over this weekend and a neighborhood party, so I didn’t have time to write a post for today. I’m putting this one up from the archives instead. I still have this mug, and I still love it!

I hope you all have a great day!
