This. Just This.

I wasn't going to post today. I've had a rough day.
Not in the whole scheme of the global world kind of rough day.

But just a "it's hard to be a mom of a 3 year old who will not listen to a word I say, is into everything, won't obey, all I do is discipline all day long......................." kind of day.

I feel like all I do is try to make Harper be "good".  I'm terrified of what everyone at church and MDO and the grocery store think of my child and how they must whisper when I walk off about how I need to get control of her.

She's not a terrible child. She's a wonderful blessing to me.  She's just a very sprited, strong willed girl. But I worry every minute of every day that I'm not doing the right things as a mother and that she will turn out awful because of it.

And then I followed a link to this post.

And I cried my eyes out.

I desperately needed to read that today.

Maybe you did too.

And P.S. When Harper is a missionary in Africa and I never get to see my grandkids I guess I'll just laugh at all the times I have prayed over and over "God use her in awesome ways - I want her to have a passion for you above all else".
