Why is it that I lose my patience most with the ones I love?
My intentions are always to try and demonstrate love and the gospel of Jesus Christ in action, so why do I end up feeling so inadequate at being a good wife and mother?
How can I teach my children through example when my own example isn't good enough?
As I "feel better" and "return to normal", I realize I have been living in a bubble for a year. I haven't been the main caregiver, the responsibilities have been shared. Now I am feeling quite humbled and overwhelmed by the tasks that are again mine. A whole day of being Mom is often more than I can handle. I hope it will get better in time, but I am feeling discouraged by my daily "outputs" and "outcomes".
How can I become the kind of mother I want to be? How can I fit back into this critical role in my life without feeling like I constantly fall short?
I know we all fall short, I understand that is part of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the reason we all need the atonement of our Savior. So, what can I do to implement changes into my life that will have a positive impact on my family members? How do you stay patient, teach with love, demonstrate kindness and service and keep life in check? Please share your thoughts. My tears tell me I need all the help I can get.
