Someone asked me to write a blog to encourage mothers this week. (Mother's Day is Sunday...don't forget people) :) 

They asked me to give a little advice and encouragement. I sat with the assignment for a week. I STRUGGLED with it...big time. Why? 

Because most days...I don't feel like a great mom. I don't feel like I have any great advice to give moms because why would anyone take advice from an average to below average mother? Man, I feel like I blow it every day.  

Then I realized something. 

Those of us that feel that way...giving it everything we have every day and at the end of the day still feeling miles away from superstar mom status...we are INCREDIBLE moms. Here's why...we are trying. Do we always get it right? No. Are there days we want do-overs on so we don't yell at the middle kid as much or spend more time with the baby? Of course....but here's what we need to remember. Even on THOSE days - we are still good moms. It just doesn't feel like it. 

Someone told me once that some of the best hitters in baseball...only hit the ball 30% of the time...but they are trying 100% of the time. That batting average can get you into the baseball hall of fame y'all :) Missing the ball 70% of the time!!!  Moms...this should make you feel better instantly :) 

That's it. That's all I got...and for now, it's enough. 

Happy Mother's Day to every mom striving to be better than the day before.
