Mom gives herself grace.

by Jennifer Dyer

Whether or not you are a mom, I doubt you can handle “it all.” No one can. So, what to do?

A friend called me earlier and said, “You’re not going to believe what I just did.” She went on to describe applying for three jobs. On the first resume she put down the wrong job title, the second she forgot to put a subject on the email, and the third she forgot to sign the form when she dropped it off. Little mistakes, but perhaps costly. Instead of crying about it, though, she laughed. “You can’t do it all,” she said, “and I’m going to trust God that if the job is meant for me it will happen.”

She’s right. She is a mother, wife, full-time home keeper, and a volunteer. It’s no wonder a few little details slipped by. The important thing is to be able to laugh at the little slip ups. Laugh at the past, enjoy the present, and look toward the future. Trust God to take care of all three.

Enjoy today, friends.

  1. I especially like the 3 things at the end: laugh, enjoy, look to the future – as well as trusting God for his care.
