Today I want to honor all the amazing mommas out there. We have all had to rise up to the challenges of this current season with strength, grace and courage. It hasn’t always been easy, but we have done it.
I truly believe God has equipped us all, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to be the exact mommas our kids need. He gave you the children you have because YOU, yes you, are the one they need. Your strengths, weaknesses and personality are all things God uses to teach your kids. So don’t doubt yourself so often. Just lean into Jesus and trust Him to work in you.
So here’s to all the mommas out there… the ones waking up multiple times at night with a young one. To the ones homeschooling/online schooling for the first time. To the ones who are getting creative with their cooking to not waste leftovers or things in your pantry. The mommas working from home during the fringe hours. Women who cutting corners to make ends meet. To the prayer warriors praying for our world and nation. The NICU mommas fighting for their preemies daily. Nurses who care for others during a work shift and then go home to care for their families.
Your work matters. It is your act of worship to God. He sees all the sacrifices you make as acts of service to your littles. You are known and loved!
And to all the women out there who aren’t mommas yet or have lost precious babies in the womb, my heart and prayers are with you today. You matter too and are not forgotten.
Thank you to all the wonderful mommas who have entrusted me to photograph the special seasons of their lives. Whether it’s a newborn or family session, I’m so grateful to be there to preserve those moments for you. I can’t wait to get back to serving each of you soon!
