There is nothing quite so scary as realizing you really don’t know what you are doing. Whether it is pain or failure or criticism – something brings you to the place of uncertainty and hesitant action.
There is nothing quite so joyful as realizing your are making a difference in someone else’s life. Whether it is their thanks or success or the living out of truths you are pouring into them – something causes you to see the impact you are making.
There is nothing like motherhood to combine these two realities into one amazing, terrifying package. The pain and fulfillment, the criticism and success come together to be part of the terrifying, humbling, fulfilling work that is motherhood.
Ten years ago I entered the world of motherhood. Since that day, I have learned so much about being a mom, about myself, even about my mom; and yet I am continually reminded there is so much I do not yet know! Even as I seek to teach and train my children, I am being taught through them and daily I am surprised by motherhood.
