I can love like that


I have always found it easy to love others and hold the best for them. Except within my four walls. It seems strangers receive the best of me while my husband and children end up with the left overs. Whats left over often isn’t pretty. Wrestling with the guilt and shame of giving them less than what I would give a complete stranger when they are the very best thing in my world.

c-I have not loved them well
t-this makes you a bad mother and a bad spouse
f-heartbroken, sad, unworthy, fearful they will leave, unloved
a-mopeing around, go into hiding
r-more distance within these relationship

c-I have not loved them well
t-This is a chance to receive and display forgiveness. You can change that from this point forward. You can love them better than you love strangers.
f-empowered, loved, grace
a-laughter, family outings
r-growing stronger bonds with my family
