Have you ever had someone walk by and thought"My goodness! Why are they wearing that horrible perfume?" We moms use stinky perfume often. It is called guilt. It smells terrible. We splash it liberally behind our ears, on our wrists. Sometimes we immerse our entire bodies in it!
So how about today if we stop and look at our parenting a little more objectively? Are you doing the best you can? You are going to make mistakes. There are days when you are tired. When you are wrong, apoligize to your child. If it was something you think needs confessing, then talk to God about it. Then move on. Forgive yourself.
You are doing a hard job. You are doing a great job. Sometimes nobody sees it. Sometimes no one acknowledges it. Other moms of RAD kids know. YOU ARE AMAZING! Splash a little of that on!
