Amen! Hehe 🙂 I think being a mom is one of the greatest, but underappreciated and unacknowledged, jobs there is out there. From my experience as a caregiver to my grandmother, I often thought of my role being similar to a mom (and often found myself being able to relate to mommas more than other peers my age sometimes). I remember from when I met your mom that she has such a heart for people, Misha, and I can totally see how that got passed down to her children as well. <3
Your post on "filters" and how we as people have a tendency to put on a mask when we interact with others has really inspired me to try and be more real (even if that means feeling vulnerable sometimes). It's not that I act "fake" like in a manipulating kind of way or anything like that, but recently I've been finding that little voice in my head shutting my ideas down when I think I should be reaching out to others. Like if I'm feeling down, that little voice would tell me that I shouldn't text and let a friend know what's going on in my life because "I'm just being a bother" or "I'm just gonna drag down their day too". But I'm realizing now that it's okay to just be real, even on those bad days, and it's okay to be honest when I'm feeling those more "negative" feelings. God gives us encouragement through the fellowship we have with other believers, and it's okay to share about struggles and the bad days because those friends that He puts around us will be there to help. I've been trying to take it one day at a time though (which helped me get through the rest of the school year – Yay, finals week is over!).
Could you keep me and my family in prayer this week? My grandmother actually passed away pretty suddenly last month (which has really changed my life at home and in general, since she had lived with us for over a decade) and we're having her funeral this week. She was my mom's mom, and this is the first Mother's Day without her, but we know that she's with Jesus now though, which is a blessing.
Thank you for all that you are doing through this blog, Misha, it's really making a difference in my life! <3 ~L
