This is a break from my normal blog posts, but I hope you enjoy this poem I wrote for Mother’s Day.
The Ideal Mother
Some women think they must be,
Simply perfect and have a perfect family.
They want a certain home and life,
They think they must be the perfect wife.
But life isn’t perfect, it’s only in dreams,
The ideal woman is an illusion it seems.
However, when we remember why we are here,
God’s plan helps to make the ideal more clear.
Every child comes with unique gifts and traits,
So their needs are different, both small and great.
Consider how God, in his infinite wisdom,
Orchestrated when and to whom each child would come.
Your gifts and strengths are ideal for their needs,
Suited to soothe each fear, and heal what bleeds.
The world may say you must be like another,
But in God’s eyes and for your kids, you are the ideal mother.
