Most of the time, I feel inadequate as a mother.
Don't get me wrong -- my baby is well taken care of, very much loved, and thriving. Yet I worry that I'm not doing enough, being enough, giving her enough. She is the most precious responsibility that I have ever been given. I have prayed more in the last 43 weeks than I ever did in my life before she arrived. She is my greatest teacher. What is she teaching me? How to love and accept myself as I am. How to be in this present moment. How to experience genuine gratitude.
I'm posting this here for you, mama, because you may need this reminder, too. Your baby needs you and loves you just are you are. You are enough. You are doing the best you can with what you have. Enjoy these moments before they become precious memories. You got this, honey bunny!
