You’re Not Alone (An Almost-Wordless Wednesday)

by SomeGirl on April 27, 2010 · 10 comments

I don’t have much to say today. Just thought I’d post one of my new favorite pictures… I love the colors and think the subject is ADORABLE!

On a totally unrelated topic, have you ever felt like a bad mom? I’ve been feeling like one lately… no reason that I can pin point, just one of those feelings.

If you’ve ever felt that way, I’m here to tell you… you’re not alone!    ♥   And as my sweet friend, Alicia, reminded me: they’re just feelings, not the truth.

May the Truth set us free from the lies of our feelings!


Aha! I found the problem and blogged about it here.

I feel like a bad mom often. That is quite an adorable photo.


Don’t you hate that!? But looking at your blog I can tell you’re a GOOD mom! I’m SO glad you left a comment… I’ll be praying for you (and me) as we deal with our feelings. May God replace them with His Truth! ♥ Love, Michelle

I love the pic! Super adorable!

Yep, Iknow exactly what you mean. I have definitely struggled with those feelings. But it’s important to remember that they’re just feelings….not truth. I pray that your sweet children remind you what a great Mom you are and just how much they love you.

Take care my sweet friend!


Alicia, You are SO sweet!! Your words are always so encouraging… thank you! And to know that you’ve struggled with those feelings lets me know I’m in REALLY good company… thank you!! ♥ Michelle

Love the picture!! and YES!! I can totally identify with those feelings! It always helps me to find something in the day that reminds me of my purpose in being a mom ~ something like a random kiss or hug from my little guy or even the fact that he has a clean diaper on!! haha =) I’ve still been praying for you!! Hope today is a much better day!! =)


Haha… love the clean diaper standard! I think I’ve slipped back into “perfectionist” mode without realizing it… thanks for bringing me back! ;) And thanks for praying… I really can sense your prayers! Hopefully you can sense mine! ♥ Michelle

Ah, yes. Been there, done that. Typically, I can point to the reason for those feelings, which then gives me something to strive not to do or say in the future – if that’s the reason why I’m feeling like a bad mom. But the days when I feel that way and have nothing concrete to point to as to why I feel that way are really frustrating. Then, what do I work on? How do I improve? What can I change?

Just know that we’ve all been then, and I appreciate your reminder as well. We have to trust that God will guide us to do better and realize that we’re not perfect. All we can do is love and “fraddle” and encourage our children to the best of our ability. God will take care of the rest for us and them. =)

Thanks for the post!


Girl, you just hit the nail on the head! I hadn’t really thought about it until I read your comment, but I’ve been fraddling FOR all kinds of people over the past several days and not fraddling WITH my boys… Thank you! Now, I’m off to go love my boys intentionally! I feel better already… thank you!! ♥ Michelle


That photo is incredible!

Yes, there are numerous times that I have felt like a bad mom. And I know there will be many more to come.

I can tell that you are far from a bad mom. You are a great mom. Even us moms need a little lifting sometimes and a hug. Thinking of you.


Thank you! It helps knowing other good moms feel like bad moms sometimes. And thanks for the sweet words and thoughts!! ♥ Michelle
