I want to be a YES mom

How often do you hear yourself saying, "Just a minute buddy." or "No." when maybe you could have said YES to your children?  As moms, we are constantly being asked to give...and honestly, it can be exhausting. I know I'm struggling when at the end of the day, all I can remember were the disappointed looks on the faces of my children and the sadness in my heart for not truly tuning in to them. In those moments, instead of listening to them, really listening to them, I was selfishly wanting them to do something for me. What they needed was something FROM me and what I needed was someONE to fill me up. See the problem? They weren't created for that job. No one is, except Jesus.

And so, I'm learning {slowly} that if I want to be a YES mom, I'm going to have to look to Jesus for my filling...not my sweet kids {or my husband}. That would be a gift my whole family would benefit by, for sure.

I'd love for you to join me in a mini YES-MOM challenge. You can read more about that and my article over at Managing Your Blessings. I hope you'll join me.
