I am one of those moms who has started a mom group.
Walking side by side, wind blowing through our uncombed hair to the beat of "Bittersweet Symphony" as we carry a child on our hip while pushing a stroller and drinking a latte.
I am that mom.
I wish I were that cool.
I have too much on my plate as it is.
A thirty hour per week job, a cupcake thing, twin two year olds, a one year old, a husband, a house, a weightloss goal and a dream. A vision from God to be more. To give more. To support and be compassionate more. To come alongside more.
Ergo, I have a full plate but when my Father tells me to put something else on it, I listen.
His plans are not mine.
I am his.
So here we go God. Do what you will. I will follow you. I will be obedient. I will love.
I will wear my snot stained sweatshirt to the store to stand in line with all the other moms of little ones. We are just trying to make it through the day. I want to do more than just make it. I want to grow. I was to thrive. I want to laugh.
Yep, I'm one of those.
