How ironic is this post today?! So my previous post was about reality vs social media presence and how we try to make things look so perfect.
Today I was going to share the “perfect” food photo and recipe idea on my Instagram account. But guess what?! Mom life happened. I almost didn’t even take a picture of this (actually kinda wish I grabbed a picture of the actual result of what happened) but I grabbed it and wanted to share.
How many times do we have something happen as a mom? Something creates a mess, something doesn’t go right, or the kids get in trouble?
So, I had my picture perfect plate and went to grab the hemp seeds to add to the top to really make it “picture perfect” …
and the cat jumped up and the plate dropped!
Peppers exploding and tuna salad everywhere! I did manage to save some of it. But there went my picture perfect plate.
Now, 3 years ago I would have LOST it!!!!
Thankfully I have had something for a while helping me with my mom cool and I honestly started laughing. Cause I was thinking back to my previous post.
This wasn’t even supposed to be a blog post. But God has a way of teaching you things.
For me, I was sitting there remembering the blessings in the moment, I have food to eat (what was left), I have cats who are like family members, and I was not freaking out.
Even in the moments when chaos seems to happen, we can still find a blessing to help us turn that event around.
So this weekend, I challenge us to find blessings and joy even in the chaos of motherhood.
Here is a bonus for you. The recipe I was going to share. Enjoy.
