Work in progress
There is a wonderful topic at Danielle Bean's website today. It's about "perfect moms". Are you one? Do you know one? Secretly want to be one? Or like the rest of us have you found yourself perhaps, shall we say, lacking in a virtue here or there. Maybe the kitchen floor has more stick than shine or the children are asking, "Frozen pizzas, AGAIN?"
As moms, we are our own worst critic, aren't we? The house isn't as clean as everyone else's, the children are making a *fashion* statement--again...this time in public, the laundry is overtaking the laundry room (and anything and anyone in its path), mom's response to the children's choice of canvas for their artwork was less than charitable and those of you stationned in Germany might recall items fixed, in a fit of hormonal pregnancy rage, with duct tape which bespeak not-so-much the kinder, gentler and perfect mom seen in the public eye...and has anyone forgotten my own personal favorite entitled "Glue as lipstick" ? I think I like Danielle's topic just because misery loves company.
So, stop by her site and read the funny stories of these honest women who are striving for holiness, but know all too well that only in Christ (not in clean floors, folded laundry and well-behaved children) are we made perfect. And when you're finished reading, add your own.
