Gospel Reading today:
"Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful." Luke 6:36

Why are we mothers so dang hard on ourselves? How many of us fall into bed at night not proud of the way we acted towards our children that day? There are days I think.."I was a really good mom today" and there are also days I think..."I was a terrible mother today". This is called being human. We all fail from time to time. We are by no means perfect and that is why Christ had to come and save us. We all have our faults and struggles of character. Mine personally, I am not proud to say, is anger. I have to work so hard not to yell or lash out at my family when I get frustrated. I pray for strength and protection from it daily. Thankfully, I have a very merciful husband who listens to me and helps me with my struggles and encourages me to overcome them. Be mericful to yourself. Ask for forgiveness and ask for help to try to be better. But by no means let it bog you down so much that you can't move forward. We are all broken and for that reason we need Christ walking with us daily. Mercy is a wonderful gift from the Holy Spirit....use it for yourself and towards others!

Blessings to you this Thursday.
