We all have days when we feel like we’re just not enough.
You know… strong enough, smart enough, creative enough, motivated enough, or whatever your “enough” is!
Every woman has felt that way. And, when we do, we can start believing the lie that says how we feel is who we are.
Right? Surely, I am not the only one?!
Oh girl, I know I’m not the only one.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I started thinking about what makes a great mom.
I decided there are 3 B’s.
Now, B could stand for “brainy,” and that would be a great quality for a mom. Or, it could begin the word “beautiful,” and who among us wouldn’t want that adjective describing us? The B could also stand for “buoyant” or “bouncy.” It could begin the words “brilliant” or “bargain-busting-babe.”
But I thought about my own mother and, even though many of the above adjectives describe her, there were still three more B’s she possesses that I hope will describe me as I grow as a mom.

He was making the point that we should not give our spouse whatever is “left over” at the end of the day.
But, that is not what I heard…
