I’m Not A #SuperMom

Super Mom is a phrase that has been used to describe me in the past. I’ve often read or heard other people use it to describe special needs parents.  It’s actually a phrase I am not to found of. When I hear the words used to describe me I cringe.

The fact is I’m just like other moms.

I kiss boo boos.

I give cuddle and hugs.

I conduct homeschooling, play activities and tuck my children into bed.

Yes, I do deal with crazy things like my child being sick for 2 months with RSV.

Or going to an ER by myself with two children.

The fact is parenthood is hard no matter what is happening in each family unit. There is long hours, stress, sick children, homework and so many other things going on.

Than there are the many blessing of rasing a child; laughter, hugs, I Love You, memories.

During those weary times a verse that brings me comfort is Psalm 46:1

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

God’s strength can carry us through things we often think are too much. One of the things I have started to see myself as is a gladiator.

Historically I know that gladiators where men but I think it is the image that draws me. It helps me see myself as a warrior. I can see myself standing strong with my shield of faith, my belt of truth, sword of the spirit, (Ephesians 6:10-17.)

Also historically gladiators fought other people..(a sad fact of history) instead I see myself fighting satins attempts in my life, dealing with illness, and dealing with the special needs side of our life.

I'm not a super mom quote

This year one of my New Year resolutions is to spend more time with God during times of peace. To get back into the habit of spending more time building my relationship with him.

Fact: I am a good mom without God but I am an amazing mom when I am walking with God and building my relationship with him.

  1. This reminds of the quote “Don’t ask God for a easier life ask God for strength to live your life” God does give us some amazing strength sometimes, and there are many things I could not have done with out him.
