Motherhood 🌷

Being a good mom was all I ever wanted from about about month five of my first pregnancy…

…a chance to give the gift of a beautiful childhood that I never had. Know what I mean?

My addiction took that from me.

My undiagnosed mental illness took that from me.

My dysfunctional family ways took that from me.

My own foolish choices took that from me.

That pain can drive me back into addiction


 drive me into arms of Jesus.

I choose Jesus.

I forgive myself for my weakness and stubbornness and pride.

(I forgave my offenders long ago.  That was gnarly, but a piece of cake compared to forgiving myself.)

I hereby release my right to vengeance

against myself

to God.

I trust Him to make it right

 and turn this mess  

into something beautiful.

  1. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be useful to read content from other writers and use something from other sites.

  2. After looking over a few of the articles on your web page, I seriously like your technique of blogging. I book-marked it to my bookmark site list and will be checking back soon. Take a look at my web site too and tell me how you feel.
