I am sure that there is not a single mother out there who has messy days. You know the kind I’m talking about. The days and moments where you wish you could take back you impatience and swallow the many of the words that flowed from your mouth in irritation and anger. And, at the same time all of us have days and moments where our heart swells at the sight and sweet words of our little ones. We feel the overwhelming blessing of all that motherhood is. Sometimes being a mother is hard and sometimes being a mother is so joyful, either way it is worth it, but we are all in need of encouragement during those moments of insanity.
Mother Letters is a beautiful collection of letters of encouragement for mothers who need a pick me up. It isn’t a source of perfect motherhood (since in our sinful selves it doesn’t exist). But, it is a beautiful picture of the mess and glory of a sometimes difficult job. I want to recommend this beautiful book to you so that you can get the encouragement that you need to be a better mom and to be reminded that you are a wonderful mom.
