And that something is: being a wife and a mother.
I find so much joy making our house a functioning, beautiful home. I'm not great at it, but I never stop trying.
I love making yummy, hearty meals for my husband. I'm not very good at that, but I never stop trying.
I love setting out my husbands work clothes the night before an early shift. I'm not great at keeping up with his laundry, but I never stop trying.
I love playing with my girls. I find so much joy watching them get excited, use their imagination, and create. I'm not very good at putting off household duties to get on their level, but I never stop trying.
I never stop trying to be what my husband needs in a wife, what my girls need in a mother...
I never stop trying to be what I need from myself, be that a good student, fabulous friend, dedicated child of God, wonderful sister, loving daughter...
I am exhausted at the end of each day.
But at least I am fulfilled.
