Encouraging Words for When You Think You Are Doing This Mothering Thing Wrong


Your tween says something so defeating it pierces your soul and you have to wonder, “Who is this kid?!”…then immediately ask, “Where’s the nearest boarding school?”

Maybe your toddler has been a perfect little Angel all day until…you walk into Target and the melt-down in the cracker isle begins. I mean, the explosive, throw-thy-self-on-the-floor-with-bloodcurdling-screaming-and-crying kind, and you are tempted to yell out, “Does anyone know whose child this is?”

Moms, we’ve all been there. The meltdowns never really go away, they just evolve into bigger drama. {sigh}

Some days it feels like we are doing this mothering thing all wrong. Well, we’re not. It’s just how kids are.

So, here is a collection of my favorite pick-me-up words for those days when you just need someone, anyone, to say something nice to you. I am here to tell you…

Don’t let a bad day make you feel like you have a bad life. ~Anonymous

Someday you just have to create your on sunshine. ~Anonymous

You haven’t dropped the ball–you’ve just had a bad day. ~Lisa-Jo Baker

You have to have a bad day every once in a while, otherwise you’ll never know what a good day feels like. ~Anonymous

I don’t pray for God to take my problems away, I pray only for God to give me the strength to go through them. ~Jose Lazano

And lastly, if those words of encouragement don’t work for you, try this…

One day

Repeating that one has gotten me through my share of hard days!

May you have a drama-free, tantrum-free, stress-free Memorial Day weekend!

  1. And a lot of times this happens when they move out or away. They don’t call very much, don’t see you very much, don’t think of you very much. But you still love them very much.
