Today was a stick my foot in my mouth, regret my words and my tone, and ask for forgiveness kind of day. Anyone else have a moment like that today? I felt awful as soon as the words left my mouth, I knew it was a complete mom fail, I knew whether I was tired or stretched to my limit or not- I was wrong. But you want to know what I’m learning-God forgives. And if God forgives-I need to forgive myself. And God created a beautiful picture of forgiveness in our children. The unconditional love of a child is incomprehensible. As I look at them this week and see their baby faces in their big kid bodies I am in awe of God’s amazing grace. As we have reminisced over memories and moments I can see all the times God has been faithful and true even in the midst of trials and struggles. So on this Thankful Thursday, instead of feeling like a failure because I had a mom fail moment, I am thankful for forgiveness.
